OPINEL introduces the VRI N°08 Carbon folding pocket knife. It boasts ahigh-quality carbon steel blade, 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 that prevents accidental opening.
Note that carbon steel may blacken or rust with time. 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 renowned brand among folding pocket knife producers. OPINEL knives are currently sold worldwide, with over 360 products sold per hour.
Most of the wood used for OPINEL handles comes directly from France, but exotic wood is used for the luxury series (ebony, zebrawood, rosewood, etc.). OPINEL blades are made from first-class Swedish steel.
