The No.05 Opinel folding knife is a great size for small pockets, making it a convenient everyday carry. The No.05 may be on the smaller end of the folding knife range, but comes complete with the signature sharp Opinel blade and varnished comfortable beech wood handle. Due to the size, this knife does not feature the Virobloc® safety ring.
Select either high carbon steel or stainless steel.
Hand wash only. Do not immerse your knife in water, as this could warp the wooden handle. Do not wash the carbon blade by running it under water, simply wipe it down after use. If wet, immediately dry the carbon blade with a soft, dry towel. Lubricating the carbon blade with a food safe oil before closing the knife is recommended (this prevents oxidation). Over time, carbon steel can develop a patina and may possibly show some corrosion, depending on use.
