Opinel Le Secateur, Slate


Chic and sophisticated secateurs for stylish gardeners. These pruners' unique, patented design offers many advantages, including comfort, safety and ease of use. The cutting blades can be locked in three positions - closed, partially open and wide open -  to allow for different branch thicknesses and hand sizes. The spring mechanism is cleverly hidden to avoid crushing or pinching your fingers, meaning there are no parts to be lost.

  • Overall dimensions: 21 cm x 7.5cm x 2 cm
  • Blade length: 6 cm
  • Weight: 225g (on the lighter side for secateurs)
  • Made from 55-57 HRC stainless steel with French beech handles and polyamide grips
  • Designed in France and made in Portugal
  • Suitable for cutting stems, twigs and branches up to 2cm in diameter

Brand Focus


In 1890, in a small village in France, Joseph Opinel invented the folding pocket knife that now bears his name. In 1955, Marcel Opinel devised the unique Virobloc® system, which allows the blade to be secured in the open position. The Opinel company, located at Chambéry in the heart of the Alps, is still run by Joseph's decedants and manufactures blades of a quality that has made the brand famous for more than 130 years.
