Full description

This Opinel Chaperon No. 8 pocket knife from the Tradition series has a length of 16.5 cm and a weight of 45 grams. A unique feature of this Opinel knife is its unusual handle. It consists of a unique composition of four tropical woods. The composition is a surprise every time; each knife has its own original look! Are you looking for an affordable, everyday pocket knife with an authentic yet unusual look? Then this is the pocket knife for you!

Virobloc lock

The knife has a Virobloc lock, also known as a ring lock. With a Virobloc, the hinges of the blade are firmly blocked by the ring. This type of locking system requires two hands, which means your fingers are less likely to come near the cutting edge. The ring is often also used to lock the knife when closed. Occasionally add a drop of oil to make sure the ring will keep turning smoothly.

Steel

The blade is made from stainless Sandvik 12C27 steel, which is extremely durable thanks to the addition of chrome. A small amount of carbon has also been added to the steel. These knives really are razor-sharp. The blade is polished to a high gloss, resulting in a beautiful mirror effect. This gives the knife a very stylish look.

Handle material

The artistic handle is the trademark of Bruno Chaperon, a famous French cabinetmaker. He has used four types of wood in the handle: ebony, rosewood, purpleheart and cocobolo. Each handle has a unique composition of these tropical woods. The handle also has a special coating, which protects the colours of the wood from external influences. Despite this protective coating, we always recommend that you store the knife properly. Never leave your knife in the sun for long!

Accessories and maintenance

To keep enjoying your Opinel pocket knife for a long time, maintenance is essential. A drop of Ballistol oil prevents the wood from drying out and ensures that it won't lose its colour. Don't forget to oil the hinges as well. This keeps the ring running smoothly. You can make the blade razor-sharp again with Opinel's sharpening stones. Always store your knife properly in a matching sheath to prevent damage to the metal. In other words: check out our combo deals and complete your set!

The knife comes in a luxurious blue gift box and a black protective sleeve.
