There are material consistencies across the entire Les Forgés collection. Each model is made with a single piece of X50CrMoV15 steel comprising the blade itself, the guard, and the (full) tang. X50CrMoV15 is a stainless steel produced in Germany that often appears in kitchen cutlery specifically for its capacity for stain resistance. The handles are made from beechwood – a material that will be familiar to owners of other Opinel knives.
The venerable Opinel folding knife is the pinnacle of elegant simplicity. These look to keep up the tradition.
They look to all be under $100, which makes them competitive with many consumer grade knives. I have a feeling they will hold up considerably better if treated properly.View Linked Article
