Regular price $59.95

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

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 Carbon Steel Folder comes with an 8.3 cm blade manufactured from X90 Carbon Steel and carries Opinel’s crowned hand hallmark Etching.

Opinel knives “Carbon” Blade Series are made using X90 Carbon Steels with a high carbon content, which is what makes it possible to achieve the excellent hardness after heat treatment, guaranteeing the good strength of the cutting edge, resistance to wear and easy sharpening. Carbon has a low resistance to corrosion caused by moisture, which means that certain precautionary measures are necessary when using and storing the knives: we recommend that you avoid damp environments and that you dry and grease the blade after use.

The knife features a natural varnished Beech Wood Handle and a Safety Ring for locking the blade in either 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.

The knife is accompanied with a rugged, brown Synthetic Leather Belt Sheath with Belt Loop and Metal Attachment Carabiner Clip,  Natural Wood Display/Storage Box with Plexiglass Lid.
