Multipurpose, the No. 08 is essential for the small DIY, camping, hunting.

The pencil case gift box makes a beautiful gift by offering the knife and Alpine sheath in wooden case closed by a plexiglass cover.

Features:

  • Blade length – 8.5 cm
  • Carbon steel XC90 – Extremely hard, thereby guaranteeing excellent cutting quality, good wear resistance, and easy regrinding. Carbon can corrode easily. Opinel advise you to avoid damp locations and to wipe and grease the blade after use.
  • Wooden handle – Beech is the most commonly used wood for the manufacture of Opinel handles. From France, our beech is hard, durable and easy to work. With a homogeneous appearance, its light color varies from yellow to pink. It is characterized by the presence of numerous small dark dashes.
  • Safety ring – 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).
