What a cool knife! Sort of a cross between an Effilé and a Tradition in terms of handle and blade style, but with a thicker and stronger blade for garden/workshop use. Very handy! A really nice all-around home/garden/work knife. Super sharp and strong stainless steel blade for easy maintenance and stain-free use. The blade folds into the handle and includes the simple and effective "Virobloc" Opinel-exclusive blade locking device, to lock the blade safely and securely in the open or closed postion. Beechwood handle with a hole in the end so you can thread a lanyard if you want, so you don't drop it in among the petunias. Individually boxed. Makes a great gift for the green thumb in your life!
