OPINEL Explore #12 Stainless Steel, Green


The #12 Explore folding knife combines the qualities of a hunting and surviving knife. The short robust blade (10 cm long, 2.7 mm thick) ensures accurate cutting.

The bi-material handle is made of hard polymer charged with fibreglass for excellent resistance to water, knocks and extreme temperatures, the softer part ensures good grip. At the end of the handle there’s a 110 dB whistle, a flint to rub on the back of the blade, and a steel cutting hook for twine and large game. The hook is detachable for easy cleaning and features a hole allowing you to secure the knife to clips.
