The world famous knife from Opinel! No.9 Oyster knives!
The blade is short, robust, & cuts only at the tip. The tip, centered in relation to the knife's axis facilitates easy oyster opening. The oyster shucking knife is perfect because it folds away nicely for storage making it perfect for boats, pockets, & other tight spaces. The padouk wood handle is ergonomic & is resistant to swelling in humid environments.
Stainless steel blade. From responsibly harvested European wood. Virobloc safety ring. In addition to locking the blade open, it locks the blade closed. Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives sizes No6 through No12. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc has two sections, one fixed & one sliding. In addition to locking the blade open (safety while in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety on the go). Made in France
