Opinel No. 12 does not require much personal care, as it is made from practical materials. Its blade does not rust (Sandvik 12C27 steel) and is easy to sharpen. The handle of the knife is made of exotic bubinga wood, which is native to Africa. It is brown in medium tones, treated with a special protective compound that prevents moisture from being absorbed into the wood and acts as a barrier to dirt. As for the geometry, the handle tapers from about the middle and its axial one decreases relative to the horizontal axis so that the knife can be held firmly in the hands. The tree has proven itself well for the production of knife handles. Moreover, this breed is characterized by both good practical qualities and an attractive appearance.
An important feature of the Opinel No. 12 model is that the knife is equipped with a Viroblock lock. This clutch mechanism is very simple and, due to the absence of unnecessary parts, is very durable. In addition, it fixes the blade in relation to the handle in two positions at once: open and folded. Therefore, Opinel No. 12 is perfectly safe to carry with you to camping or take on any other trip to nature.
