The No.09 DIY Folding Utility Knife is the perfect tool to have around the house, in your car, or even on a boat. The polymer handle is reinforced to withstand extreme temperatures and extended exposure to water. The drop-point blade is robust and great for tough jobs.
It features two wire cutting notches which help make quick work of electrical applications. The handle can hold standard 1" bits and the tail end of the handle has a magnetic hole which lets you use the knife as a screwdriver for light-duty tasks. Make sure to close the blade of the knife and lock it with the Virobloc locking ring before using the included Philips and flat-head drivers.

Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives from the N° 06. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc 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).
