OPINEL N°09 OYSTER KNIFE
The ideal tool for opening oysters and shellfish
With its short and pointed blade, which is only sharp at the point, this pocket oyster knife is effective at opening cupped and flat oysters. The Padouk handle is moisture-resistant. Take it to the seaside with you or give it as a Christmas gift.
Stainless steel is an alloy steel. The addition of chromium increases its resistance to corrosion. Stainless steel does not require any special maintenance.
Padouk is a dense and fine-grained African wood. Its color varies from purple brown to pinkish with purple veins.
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).
