Couteau Opinel Tradition, Manche Hêtre, Acier Carbone, 12cm, #12

13 produits en stock

C'est LE classique Opinel ! Couteau de poche de style "Tradition" avec un beau manche en hêtre clair. Dispose d'une assez grande lame de forme classique "Yatagan" de 12 cm et d'un manche classique Opinel Tradition. Lame en acier au carbone super tranchante et solide pour un entretien facile de son tranchant de rasoir. La lame se replie dans le manche et comprend le dispositif de blocage de lame "Virobloc" exclusif Opinel, simple et efficace, pour verrouiller la lame en toute sécurité en position ouverte ou fermée.

REMARQUE : une lame en acier au carbone, bien que facile à garder super tranchante et très rétro-cool, rouillera et se décolorera avec l'âge et si elle est maintenue humide ou mise en contact avec des objets acides. Il est populaire auprès des personnes à l'extérieur ou des personnes qui cherchent spécifiquement à essayer un couteau en acier au carbone, mais je ne le recommande pas pour une utilisation en cuisine/alimentaire (couper quelque chose d'acide le transformera - et tout ce qu'il touche - noir tout de suite !). Comme avec tous les couteaux en acier au carbone, gardez-le aussi sec et propre que possible, mais acceptez le fait qu'il ne restera PAS brillant - cela fait partie du charme d'une lame bien-aimée et "assaisonnée" (comme une lame en carbone bien assaisonnée wok en acier).

Very fun, a bit big - you've been warned!

Purchased the 12cm Opinel Carbon to use as a steak knife (plan is to get 6 of them total). It doesn't have the best feel in hand as a steak knife as it is a bit too big for that - and in fairness is not made to be one. However it makes for a great conversation piece and is unique enough.

Out of box sharpness is ok, but it really shines if you put it to a stone or two. The carbon blade is not too reactive - a patina did start forming early on but nothing to worry about.

The mechanism to lock the knife worries me a little bit as water can easily accumulate there and possibly cause rust, but long term use will show.

Overall, a very fun and unique knife to own!

Huge, sharp and well balanced.

It's an Opinel, it's tough, sharp and this n°12 is massive. I can cut so many things as if it was paper, very happy.
Also, it's very easy to hone and sharpen.

Excellent service, knife OK

Ordered and received this knife quickly and in a well-packaged manner. Very satisfied with Pauls Finest for service. The product itself (Opinel #12) needed some work - the blade needed to be lubricated at the hinge in order to open/close it by hand (otherwise, basically had to use non-marring pliers to get it open!); and the blade edge itself had some burrs left over from factory sharpening/grinding - I made quick work of that with my own sharpening/honing tools, but it was a bit surprising to see that lack of quality control from such a well-loved brand.
Overall, very satisfied with the order, but hope that Opinel pays a bit closer attention to their QC - not bad, and nothing that couldn't be easily remedied, but most people likely expect something that is perfect from the start.

Thanks for the feedback! With the handles being wood, the hinge does tend to loosen up over time, but yes, they can be stiff at first. As for the edge, also yes, I guess due to the very affordable nature they're not spending much time finishing them and they do often have some burr left, but a quick swipe on a hone or stone generally takes care of that.
