Since 1890, I learned before writing this article about the Opinel No 9 review, it has been manufacturing uniquely designed pocket knives which have received much of its recognition by Pablo Picasso, the French people, and eventually the world when they’re knife was placed alongside the Porsche 911 and Rolex watch in the Victoria and Albert Museum, the world’s leading museum of art and design.
The Opinel No 9 Review
is one of the top selling knives produced by this company. Other Opinel knives differ in size which is a major deciding factor when purchasing any of these knives, as well as not having the trademark Virobloc locking system that doesn’t come on the smaller Opinels.
Fortunately, the Opinel No 9 review shows it DOES include the stainless steel Virobloc to keep from hazardous accidents.
It opens up to 8.25″ and closes to 4 5/8″, perfect size to slide into your pocket but long enough to remember it’s there.
|Steel:||XC90 Carbon Steel|

The Opinel No 9 review reveals sharpness, made with quality carbon steel, simple, and incredibly effective. Get YOURS today!
The opinel no 9 is made with a beechwood handle with a tapered end, popularly known as a fishtail end, that creates a comfortable support edge for your hand. Some people find it uncomfortable if their grip is awkward or their hand is too big.
Attached to the handle is the XC90 carbon steel. There isn’t an offical Rockwell hardness rating but the average tends to be between 55-60, not only that but the blade holds an edge very well. Edge geometry (convex) is sometimes more valuable than Rc hardness.
