My First Opinel Wood Whittling/Carving Knive Gift Set with Sheath and Honing Stone
Opinel is a company that have manufactured high quality wooden handled knives since 1890 in France. They still make some of the best quality wooden handled knives today.
This is complete gift set comprising of the classic Opinel Whittling Knife, Opinel Sheath and Honing Stone set in a lovely wooden case.
This is a beautifully made knife for a child that is ready for wood whittling and wood working projects as well as a multipurpose knife for exploring nature, building projects and camping. It is a real tool made for children with high quality stainless steel that is anti-corrosive and requires no special maintenance. Although it has a sharp blade, the tip is rounded and the blade is shorter so that it fits comfortably in the child's hand. It is actually important for the blade to be sharp to work well and used safely. Nothing is more dangerous than a blunt knife.
The knives also come with the Virobloc safety system on the collar which locks the blade into position – open or shut. The handle is made with beech wood.
The Opinel sheaths are made to fit the Opinel Whittling Knife and comes with a metal carabiner to use as handy hook. It also comes with a Opinel Honing Stone. An important part of owning a knife is also taking care of your tools and sharpening them when necessary.
Suitable for children ages 7 and up
Made in France.
