Opinel No.07 Chestnut & Garlic Folding Knife
A knife for nature-loving foodies!
This pocket knife is used for cutting and peeling chestnuts, as well as peeling garlic or quickly removing stones and pits from fruit by making an incision.
It is ideal for preparing jams and tarts
Its small size means it fits easily into your pocket and its short, pointed and curved 4 cm blade is easier to handle than a long blade.
- Blade Length: 4cm
- Martensitic Stainless Steel: Hardness 55-57 HRC, European origin.
The stainless steel used in OPINEL blades is a grade optimized to guarantee both high corrosion resistance and high mechanical performance.
The blade offers excellent sharpness and high resistance to abrasion (wear) which allows it to withstand regular contact with hard materials, such as ceramics, before requiring re-sharpening. Stainless steel has the advantage of requiring no special maintenance under ordinary conditions of use, unlike carbon steel. Nevertheless, it can meet its limits when it is put in prolonged contact with an aggressive environment (acid, salt water, detergent, etc.)
- Handle: Chestnut wood is one of the most beautiful species of wood, it has a light and homogeneous color. A fine and regular grain with a very strong resistance over time.
- Safety Ring: 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).
