Our most iconic size, the No.08, is the knife that started it all. Dating all the way back to 1890 when Joseph Opinel created a simple yet robust tool for the everyman, the No.08 has been featured in countless museums, books and galleries around the world. Whether you’re looking to sharpen your pencils, or prune your roses, the No. 08 has been a favorite of explorers, artists, farmers, and chefs alike. The perfect size to keep in your pocket or your bag, you'll be glad to have this folding knife close at hand. This size features the Virobloc® safety ring.
Hand wash only. Do not immerse your knife in water, as this could warp the wooden handle. Dry the blade before closing.
For over 130 years Opinel has been crafting knives and tools in the heart of the French Alps. Much like Joseph Opinel did from his workshop in 1890, today we still manufacture Opinel products from our factory in Chambery, France.
