Complete Picnic + set
The must-have kit for eating on the go!
Designed in collaboration with the designer Franck Fontana, the Picnic + set is a collection of clever and sustainable accessories for comfortable meals on the go.
It comes with:
- A No. 08 knife
- Two inserts, a fork, and a spoon, that attach to the No. 08 knife
- A microfibre towel case that is both a storage and cleaning device
The inserts are made of stainless steel, so they are pleasant to eat with and sturdy and hygienic (compatible with wooden handled N°08 knives, equipped with the Virobloc safety ring marketed since 2000).
To attach the fork or spoon:
- with the knife blade closed, open the rotating ring
- attach the fork or spoon to the ring using the small nicks
- close the ring
The kit is suitable for outdoor meals (picnic, bivouacs, camping, etc.) as well as for meals on the go at the office!
Made in France
Hardness 55-57 HRC. European origin.
The stainless steel used in OPINEL blades is a grade optimized to guarantee both high corrosion resistance and high mechanical performance.
The blade offers excellent sharpness and high resistance to abrasion (wear) which allows it to withstand regular contact with hard materials, such as ceramics, before requiring re-sharpening. Stainless steel has the advantage of requiring no special maintenance under ordinary conditions of use, unlike carbon steel. Nevertheless, it can meet its limits when it is put in prolonged contact with an aggressive environment (acid, salt water, detergent ...).
The classic Opinel blade has adopted a Yatagan shape. The Yatagan shape is inspired by a traditional Turkish saber, the toe up. The blade is ground to an exclusive convex profile that ensures the strength of the blade and allows efficient regrinding.
Beech is the most commonly used wood for the manufacture of Opinel handles. From France, our beech is hard, durable and easy to work. With a homogeneous appearance, its light color varies from yellow to pink. It is characterized by the presence of numerous small dark dashes.
Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives from the N° 06. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc has two sections, one fixed and one sliding. In addition to locking the blade open (safety in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety in transport).
