Opinel no.08 locking knife, carbon steel

Opinel's classic No.8 folding knife, with safety ring to lock the blade in place once opened. With a beech handle, and slightly clipped XC90 carbon steel blade of 8cm. This carbon steel is extremely hard, thereby guaranteeing excellent cutting quality, good wear resistance and easy regrinding. Carbon can corrode easily, so it is advised that users avoid damp locations and wipe and grease the blade after use. 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.
