Opinel – Simplicity at its finest - A Favourite for Generations!

About Opinel:

The Opinel Knife, crafted high in the French Alps, famous and virtually unchanged since 1890. With a classic and unique design, these French Country Knives all have a natural Wood Handle.

The Opinel Knife - traditional, convenient and multi-purpose Farmer’s Knife.

Product Description:

Opinel’s No 8 Pocket Knife is the most sold and versatile size in the ever growing line of Opinel folding knives.

The Opinel No. 8 Folder comes with an 8.3 cm Blade manufactured from Sandvik 12C27-MOD Stainless Steel and carries Opinel’s crowned hand hallmark Etching.

The addition of Chrome greatly increases resistance to corrosion caused by moisture. Steels are then called “stainless” and they can be used with fewer restrictions. The Stainless Steel capable of undergoing the heat treatment that gives it its good hardness is called martensitic. Sandvik12c27 Mod: All Opinel Stainless Steel Blades are modified by adding at least 0.40% of Carbon to the "Sandvik" blend , giving it a good cutting edge but which explains why knife Blades are not totally corrosion-proof and need a little bit of care.

 
The knife features a natural varnished Olive Wood Handle and a Safety Ring for locking the Blade in either the open or closed position. The double Virobloc Safety Ring was created by Marcel Opinel in 1955 and locks the Blade either in open or closed position.
 
Comes with rugged, brown Synthetic Leather Belt Sheath with Belt Loop and Metal Attachment Carabiner Clip. Natural Wood Display/Storage Box with Plexiglass Lid.
