Fillet knives are used to work with fish or meat fillets, as well as with some other products. However, they are not designed for very high loads, which must be taken into account. The Opinel No. 10 fits perfectly into this series and is one of its most popular representatives. This knife is made of stainless steel called Sandvik 12C27. It is a well balanced Swedish alloy with excellent corrosion resistance. At the same time, such a metal has a hardness of up to 58 HRC, which allows knives made from it to go without sharpening for a long time. The length of the blade is 10 cm. It is smoothly sharpened to the very tip and, in accordance with the purpose of the knife, has a narrow blade and a sharply sharpened and rather thin tip. Its maximum thickness is 1.5 mm, so the blade remains quite flexible; it is convenient to cut the fillet from the bone. The blade of this knife is mirror polished.
The handle is made from solid olive wood. Its wood is known for its high density and is in demand in many crafts. And after a special factory treatment, it becomes not susceptible to moisture. In addition, the olive knife handle does not absorb water and is easy to clean. The appearance of the knife with an olive wood handle is also worthy of praise: the natural texture is clearly visible on the wood.
The third important component in the design of the Opinel No. 10 knife is the lock. In this model, the classic lock for the Opinel brand - Viroblock - has been used. Its design is a clutch. The lock is able to hold the knife blade both open and closed, making it even safer to use.
