           Alpine Adventure - Hiking

 The No8 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 3 1/4" blade prevents it  from being considered a weapon in most states (please check with your  state).   

 

 This Knife features the Virobloc Safety rings.
Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc  safety ring is fitted to all folding knives sizes No6 through No12. Cut  out of stainless steel, the Virobloc has two sections, one fixed and  one sliding. In addition to locking the blade open (safety while in  use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety on the go).

 

 Blade:12C27 Sandvik Stainless Steel Handle:  Beechwood
Beech is the most commonly used wood for the manufacture of Opinel  handles. From France, our beech is hard, durable and easy to work. With a  homogeneous appearance, its light color varies from yellow to pink. It  is characterized by the presence of numerous small, -dark dashes. Yatagan Style:The classic Opinel blade has adopted a  Yatagan shape. The Yatagan shape is inspired by a traditional Turkish  saber, the toe up. The blade is ground to an exclusive convex profile  that ensures the strength of the blade and allows efficient regrinding.
 

 12C27 modified stainless steel is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition  of chrome and requires no special maintenance. Its carbon content of at  least 0.40% provides an excellent cutting edge.
