Made by French lifestyle brand Opinel, these secateurs are made with robust stainless steel blades. Like a hot knife through room temperature butter, they have a 20mm cutting capacity, and are shaped to reduce the cutting force required.
These secateurs have a three-position patented switch with two opening widths to adapt the pruner to the diameter of the branches - or to the size of the user's hand - and a closed position.
It comes with a varnished beech handle and polyamide upper guard for a comfortable and secure grip. Protected spring to prevent dirt from entering the mechanism and pinching.
Available colours: green and blue.
Made in Europe.
We use Sandvik 12C27 modified stainless steel. It is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition of chrome and requires no special maintenance. Its carbon content of at least 0.40% gives excellent cutting edge.
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).
Care instructions: Clean the blade well before storing in a dry place. The knife is sharp and young users should be supervised.
