No.12 Folding Saw - Natural Beech
A small saw from Opinel, with a 8cm blade that can cut branches effortlessly. Perfect for the garden, also useful during outdoor activities, it turns out to be very handy and efficient.
The No.12 Saw features a carbon steel blade with anti-corrosion coating guaranteeing both excellent cutting quality and protection against corrosion. Two rows of razor-sharp teeth turned towards the handle make for effortless cutting, with precision achieved by cutting on the pull. Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring 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).
Beech is the most commonly used wood for the manufacture of Opinel handles. From France, their beech is hard, durable and with a beautiful light colour that is characterised by the presence of numerous small dark dashes.
