OPINEL introduces the VRI N°08 Carbon folding pocket knife. It boasts a blade made from high-quality carbon steel ensuring a long service life and outstanding sharpness. The handle is made from solid, durable beech wood. OPINEL knives come equipped with the Virobloc (VRI), a safety twistlock mechanism, which prevents accidental opening.
Note that carbon steel may blacken eventually or it may get rusty spots. This can be avoided by sharpening the blade after every use.
The first OPINEL knife was designed in 1890. Over time, OPINEL has become a cult brand among those producing folding pocket knives. OPINEL knives are currently sold worldwide, reaching 360 products sold per hour.
Most of the wood used for OPINEL handles comes directly from France. The rest is exotic wood for luxury series (ebony, zebrawood, rosewood etc.) are imported. OPINEL blades are made from first-class Swedish steel.
