Very versatile, the #08, with an 8.5cm blade, is essential for DIY, camping, hunting…

It offers an excellent cutting quality. The varnished beechwood handle is comfortable in the hand.

It also features the Virobloc safety catch system, enabling the blade to be locked open or closed for added safety.

Carbon steel is extremely hard, thereby guaranteeing excellent cutting quality, good wear resistance and easy regrinding. Carbon can corrode easily. We advise you to avoid damp locations and to wipe and grease the blade after use.

This makes a beautiful gift by offering the Traditional #08 carbon steel knife and an Alpine sheath made of rugged synthetic leather in a wooden ‘pencil’ box enclosed by a plexiglass cover.

Description

Carbon steel is the steel historically used by Opinel, which has contributed to the brand’s global fame. The carbon steel blade is marked by its exceptional cutting quality and ease of sharpening. The knives are ideal for DIY, gardening, sculpture, wickerwork etc. The blade requires specific maintenance to avoid the risk of corrosion.

Beech is the most commonly used wood for the manufacture of Opinel handles. From France, their beech is hard, durable and easy to work. With a homogeneous appearance, its light colour varies from yellow to pink. It is characterised by the presence of numerous small dark dashes.

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).
