Classic carbon steel Opinel in a mini size! "Tradition" style pocket knife with a beautiful light beechwood handle. Features a tiny 4cm "Yatagan" classic shape blade and classic Opinel Tradition handle. Super sharp and strong carbon steel blade for easy maintenance of its razor sharp edge. The blade folds into the handle. Note that this model does NOT include the locking "virobloc" ring found on the larger sizes, so the blade does not lock when open or closed.
NOTE: a carbon steel blade, while easy to keep super sharp, and very retro-cool, WILL rust and discolour with age and if kept wet or put into contact with any acidic items. It's popular with outdoors people or people specifically looking to try a carbon steel knife, but I don't recommend it for kitchen/food use (cutting something acidic will turn it -- and whatever it touches -- black right away!). As with all carbon steel knives, keep it as dry and clean as possible, but accept the fact that it will NOT stay shiny -- it's part of the charm of a well-loved and "seasoned" blade (like a well-seasoned carbon steel wok).
Please consider using Tsubaki/Cammelia oil to protect the blade of your carbon steel knives.
