Product Details

The easy folding function of this Opinel Oyster & Shellfish Knife with Wooden Handle means the knife is portable, safe, and a clever must-have for all shellfish lovers. The short pointed stainless steel blade which is only sharp at the point is effective at opening cupped and flat oysters.

The handle is made from red-hued padauk wood, which has exceptional moisture resistance and looks beautiful. The Virobloc safety ring, or safety twist lock, allows the blade to be locked in either the open or closed position. Makes a wonderful gift.

About The Brand


Joseph Opinel began producing knives in a French town called Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne in 1890. By the early 20th century, Opinel had already become a household name—one that is synonymous with exceptionally practical knives for everyday and specialist kitchen use. Today the company is run by Joseph Opinel’s great grandsons, and all their products are still made in France. Featuring natural wooden handles, precision-shaped blades, and signature safety locking mechanisms, these knives are crafted for a lifetime of daily use.
