Opinel Hand Pruner/Secateurs Stainless Steel Blade in Slate.
The pruner blades are made of stainless steel and can cut through branches up to 20 mm in diameter. Their shape is optimised to reduce the effort of cutting (lever arm). The selector switch has 3 positions: closed, wide opening and narrow opening, in order to adjust to branch thickness or hand size.
The handles, in varnished beech and polyamide, are equipped with safeguards to ensure comfort and safety of handling. The hidden spring prevents any risk of crushing or pinching.
Stainless steel pruner blades. Stainless steel is an alloy steel. The addition of chromium increases its resistance to corrosion. Stainless steel does not require any special maintenance.
Beechwood/ polyamide handle. 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.
OPINEL have been manufacturing quality knives in France since 1890.
