Opinel No.8 Black Oak knife
Opinel's black edition of the iconic No.8 folding knife, with safety ring to lock the blade in place once opened, and slightly clipped Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel blade of 8cm. The black finish on the blade and ring is obtained by a specific treatment (electrolytic bath), which improves the blade's resistance to corrosion. The oak handle from trees felled in French forests is varnished. Opinel have been producing their iconic pocket knives in the Savoie region of France since 1890, and although the renowned locking ferrule was only introduced in 1955 in the years since the design has become the archetypal folding lock-knife. Possibly safer than more traditional sprung pocket knives, their construction is also less complex, allowing for a rare marriage of quality and affordability.
