Opinel No. 8 Stainless Knife is the most sold and versatile size in the ever growing line of Opinel folding knives. This knife is small enough to be used as a pocket knife and its blade prevents it from being considered a weapon in most countries.

This knife features the Virobloc Safety ring. The Virobloc safety ring was invented and implemented in 1955. This simple yet effective locking system greatly improved the original knife.The ability to help prevent the blade from opening when closed was added to the Virobloc in 2000.

This piece has a slate blue dyed handle and an attached leather lanyard, making it more handy for the outdoor user.
