The Opinel #2 is the smallest model and does not feature the Virobloc safety ring. This tiny knife is commonly used to perform small tasks such as opening letters or cutting papers.
Created in 1890 in Savoie, France, Opinel folding knives are the favorite of every French household and one of the most recognizable pocket knives in the world. The blades are stamped, heat treated, ground and polished to their unique profile and smooth cutting feel. Additional chromium is used in the stainless steel blades to ensure rust-resistence and both our carbon and stainless Opinel lines sport Beech wood handles.
