Originally established in 19th century France, Opinel has since grown into a hugely respected knife maker, lauded for its simple yet effective designs, reliability, and accessible prices. And with this year marking a full 13 decades since the Savoie-based outfit’s official launch in 1890, Opinel is now celebrating this illustrious milestone with the release of a 130th Anniversary Edition No. 8 knife.

Limited to 500 units in the U.S. and 13,000 globally, this special edition version of Opinel’s iconic folding knife features a black-anodized stainless steel blade and matching Virobloc safety ring. The blacked-out blade on this limited edition knife is paired with light French hornbeam handles that are decorated in a black pattern that celebrates the company’s past via a number of icons and illustrations such as a crown and an image of the Alps. The blade on each limited edition specimen also carries a unique serial number, denoting each specimen’s production number. Coinciding with France’s Bastille Day, the 130th Anniversary Edition Opinel No. 8. is available as of today on the manufacturer’s website, with pricing set at $49.
