  • An integrated 4 seasons 110 db survival whistle and shackle key.
  • The handle features a non-slip area (colored area) and can resist extreme temperatures (-40c to + 80c).
  • Opinel No8 is the most versatile size in the ever-growing line of folding knives.

This Knife features the Virobloc Safety rings.

  • Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives sizes No6 through No12. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc has two sections, one fixed and one sliding. In addition to locking the blade open (safety while in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety on the go)

Specifications:

  • Blade:12C27 Sandvik Stainless Steel
  • Handle:Fiberglass-reinforced polyamide withstands shocks, humidity, and extreme temperatures (-40°F à +176°F). Pealess survival whistle functions in all weathers (110 decibels).
  • Yatagan Style: The classic Opinel blade has adopted a Yatagan shape. The Yatagan shape is inspired by a traditional Turkish saber, the toe up. The blade is ground to an exclusive convex profile that ensures the strength of the blade and allows efficient regrinding.
  • Made In France:Since its creation in 1890, the company has been manufacturing its knives in the heart of the French Alps. All our products are entirely manufactured in our factory in Chambéry.
