The Opinel beech handle pruning knife N.10 is a gardener’s best friend. The curved blade acts like a miniature sickle, and cuts through stems with ease. Use to prune shrubs or thin branches from fruit trees. The pruning knife is also handy for harvesting lettuces, cabbages, and other thick-stemmed vegetables.

This Opinel pruning knife has a 10cm blade. An 8cm pruning knife with a slightly straighter blade is also available.

The modified Sandvik stainless-steel blade has a high carbon content and added chromium, for excellent cutting quality and resistance to corrosion. The handle is made from durable French beechwood and is varnished for resistance to water.

The Opinel family started as blacksmiths in Savoie, France in 1800. By 1890, Joseph Opinel had developed the first line of Opinel folding penknives, for which the company would soon become famous. The design is still true to the 200-year-old originals with just one little change – a rotating ‘cap’ where the blade meets the handle, so the knife can be locked open or closed. Opinel used their experience to make a series of high-quality gardening tools – most of which also fold away for safety in storage.
