Full description

This Opinel Bubinga No. 8 pocket knife from the Slim Line series has a length of 18.5 cm and a weight of 31 grams. Its narrow blade makes it ideal for filleting fish and cutting fine, thin slices, among other things. Opinel Slim Line knives come in various luxurious wooden handles and are very affordable. They are also true all-rounders that you can carry with you at all times! Are you looking for an affordable, everyday pocket knife made with beautiful materials? Then this is the pocket knife for you!

Virobloc lock

The knife has a Virobloc lock, also called 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.

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. Opinel has sharpened the knives until 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 handle is made of Bubinga, a reddish brown wood from Central and West Africa. Bubinga is widely used for handles, recorders and cigar cases, among other things. Please note: prolonged exposure to the sun can discolour the wood. As such, you should always store your knife away from sunlight after use. That way, you can enjoy this beautiful knife for longer!

Accessories and maintenance

To keep enjoying your Opinel pocket knife for longer, maintenance is essential. A drop of Ballistol oil prevents the wood from drying out and ensures that it won't lose its colour. Grease the hinges from time to time so that the ring continues to turn 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 Opinel set!

This is a very good looking little knife for light pocket use. The bubinga wood is delightful, and the high-polish slim blade matches it well. Just one problem - the blade, in the locked closed position, still opens about a centimetre, exposing the very sharp blade point, which is potentially dangerous. I asked knivesandtools.co if they could swap it for another, but they said all their others had the same issue. This suggests to me that it is a manufacturing issue, so I wrote to Opinel, who sent me a replacement (earlier model I think) safety ring. Unfortunately, it was even worse. This is a pity, because in all other respects this is one classy little knife.

This is a beautifully made, delicate little knife. Much nicer finish than the standard opinel knives and the bubinga wood is a nice touch. A very sharp, nice knife.
