By Opinel


Opinel's classic No. 8 knife is crafted with a black Sandvik Stainless Steel for  a modern look. The folding pocket knife with oak handle is versatile to be an all around camping gear. Small enough to be a pocket knife but functional to be used on food when needed. The 3 1/4" blade prevents it to be considered a weapon in most states. The Virobloc safety rings makes the handy knife safe to carry daily. Feel your survival insincts kick in with Opinel's knife rustic look.
  • This Knife features the Virobloc Safety rings. Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives sizes No6 through No12. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc has two sections, one fixed and one sliding. In addition to locking the blade open (safety while in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety on the go).

  • Handle:  Oak from France. Thanks to its high tannin content, this extremely resistant to insects and fungi. It has a yellow-brown appearance, with regular veining.
