Carbon steel, locking Yatagan blade with thumb notch for opening.
Carbon steel; a high carbon content makes it possible to achieve the excellent hardness after heat treatment, guaranteeing the good strength of the cutting edge, resistance to wear and easy sharpening.
Carbon has a low resistance to corrosion caused by moisture, which means that certain precautionary measures are necessary when using and storing the knives: it's recommend that you avoid damp environments and that you dry and grease the blade after use.
Yatagan blade; Yatagan was a Turkish sword many centuries ago.
The Opinel Yatagan blade, with its curved point and round profile is effective, precise and elegant.
Virobloc double safety ring; The classic Virobloc safety ring was recently improved to both allow the blade to lock in the open position for safety in use and now to also lock the blade in the closed position for safety when carrying.
