Opinel Folding Knife - N°08 Black Oak
Opinel's classic folding pocket knife with black blade for modern look. The blade and Virobloc locking ring have been anodized for a matte black finish. It is suitable for use on food.
The Opinel knife is named after the Opinel Family from the Savoie region in the heart of the French Alps. In 1890, Joseph Opinel invented a small folding knife that would eventually become a must-have item of French "savoir-vivre" (living a good life while staying elegant and smart).
Today the classic Opinel folding knife with its Virobloc safety ring is a design icon and is still made in France.
