Opinel knife n°8 - Tradition 8,5 cm - Black stainless steel, oak
The No8 Opinel knife is an absolute favorite among our customers. Specially designed for outdoor activities or daily use, it features a varnished beechwood handle and a black stainless steel blade.
The Opinel number 8 knife has been in production for 130 years, and has been the benchmark knife for the Savoy brand for those 130 years. Recognisable thanks to its magnificent design, the iconic knife is marketed in a black version.
Its oak handle allows it to resist insects and fungi thanks to a high tannin content. The wood comes from French farms and is then varnished to be protected against humidity and dirt. Its matte black, 8.5-cm-long blade is made of black stainless steel. More resistant than a classic stainless steel blade, it remains more sensitive to the risk of scratches. It is therefore recommended not to use abrasive products to clean it such as a sponge.
Easy to clean and very sharp, this Opinel knife is very useful for your bivouacs, hikes and outdoor activities.
The Opinel No. 8 Black Knife is:
- A reference-point knife for the mountains, camping or hiking
- Lightweight and easily transportable
- A blade that can be resharpened with a whetstone
