Opinel has been making folding knives and tools in the French Alps since 1890. The No.06 folding knife is lightweight and just the right size for tossing into your bag or pocket, so you're never without a knife on the go! Whether you're hiking in the backcountry, or having an impromptu picnic at the campsite, you'll be glad to have this folding knife close at hand. This knife features a Virobloc safety ring that keeps the blade securely opened, or closed. To lock your knife, simply twist the locking ring clockwise into the closed position during transport or turn the locking ring counterclockwise to prevent the blade from folding during use.
