This famous Opinel folding knife is to hand during all your adventures: hiking, camping, bivouacking, hunting and fishing. Extremely versatile, it is the ideal companion for your excursions into Nature.
The carbon steel is extremely hard, thereby ensuring that the cutting edge is maintained, little wear and easy regrinding.
The carbon is not very corrosion-resistant: we advise you to avoid damp environments and to wipe and oil the blade after use.
Cut out from a strip of steel, the blade is heat-treated to alter the internal structure of the steel, making it very hard. This raw blade then passes through a series of specific grinding wheels in the fully robotised grinding-polishing machines. They give it the unique domed Opinel profile which ensures unrivalled strength and cutting edge.
Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring locks the blade in the open position (safety in use), and the blade can also be locked in the closed position (safety in transport).
Blade: Carbon Steel
Blade Length: 8.5 cm
Open Length: 19 cm

Perfect little knife for camping/hiking/... Really sharp and lightweight. Only thing is that the blad got a bit discoloured the first time I used it. Not sure if it was my fault or the knives...
Bought this for my son in law as a present, he is very happy with it, and I am so impressed I am getting another one for my self. Very nicely made product and great service from gearshop
The Opel no 8 knives made lovely gifts, fast and easy service from Gearshop
Cheap to buy, great carbon blade and easy to sharpen. What more do you want from a knife.
