"The only oyster knife you'll ever need." - Ann Trieger Kurland, The Boston Globe, 4/13/16

Recognized around the world for making some of the most reliable pocket knives, Opinel now offers the only folding pocket knife specifically designed to easily and gently open oysters and shellfish. With a rich history dating back to 1890 in the Savoie region (Chambery) of France, Opinel has taken simplicity, robustness and functionality to a whole new level in producing this fantastic tool that is truly a must-have companion for all oyster and shellfish lovers. Makes for a great gift to those you love, and due to its durability, will most assuredly be handed down from one generation to the next.

The Opinel Virobloc or safety twistlock mechanism was invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, greatly increasing the safety and versatility of the knife by allowing the blade to be locked in the open position. In 2000, the Virobloc locking mechanism was improved to allow locking the blade in either the open or closed position. The robust stainless steel blade is designed to cut only at the tip, while the attractive Bubinga wood handle is varnished to give you a secure grip when wet.

Features:

  • Beautiful varnished (to prevent slippage) Bubinga wood handle
  • Sturdy 2.5" (6.5cm) Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel blade with ¾ inch sharpened tip to easily cut open shell
  • Tip of blade is centered along the axis of the knife for better control ergonomically
  • Virobloc mechanism ensures blade safety while in use
  • Attractively priced

Specifications:

  • Blade Material: 2.5" (6.5cm) Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel blade
  • Handle: varnished Bubinga wood
