Resists everything, nothing can resist it.
Its very strong blade (2.5 mm thick) is serrated over 3.5 cm to cut natural or synthetic ropes and has a shackle key for 4 to 10 mm shackles. Its handle is water-resistant and whitstands extreme temperatures. It is equipped with a pealess whistle.
The handle is made of injected polyamide, reinforced with fiberglass, which ensures a high resistance to shocks, water, and extreme temperatures (-40°C to + 80°C). The integrated pealess whistle works in all weather conditions and has, with a power of 110dB, a range of about 300 meters in open terrain.
Sandvik stainless steel
We use Sandvik 12C27 modified stainless steel. It is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition of chrome and requires no special maintenance. Its carbon content of at least 0.40% gives excellent cutting edge.
Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives from the N° 06. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc has two sections, one fixed and one sliding. In addition to locking the blade open (safety in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety in transport).
