Opinel Black No. 8 Folding Knife

These pocket knives are such a classic that the French refer to folding knives as Opinels in the way Americans refer to tissues as Kleenex. The company's flagship No. 8 size has been produced virtually unchanged since 1890. Its 3.25-inch blade is made of high-grade Swedish Sandvik stainless steel that is anticorrosive, holds an edge well and tunes up easily on any sharpening device, while the contoured handle nestles perfectly into the palm for firm control. We especially love the French company's ingenious “virobloc” collar-style lock, which firmly holds the blade in place by twisting sideways—it's far easier to use than most any other locking-blade knife and basically removes any risk of the blade folding onto exposed fingers. This special edition of the Folding Knife has a dramatic matte-black blade that looks sleek and modern, especially juxtaposed against the natural oak grain.
