Opinel No. 8 Black Oak Knife

May 9, 2018

Category: Gear

When you’ve been making pocket knives for as long as Opinel, pretty much any new release is noteworthy. But this latest edition of one of their most popular models, the No. 8 Black Oak folding knife, is an exceptionally beautiful take on a classic.

With the same legendary silhouette as the standard No. 8, this special edition is made with a sturdy oak wood handle (harvested from the forests of France) and mated to a black-finished Sandvik steel blade and the brand’s signature Virobloc safety ring. But, the matte black finish is more than just for looks – it also means that this knife is corrosion-proof, as well. For an excellent and easy-to-maintain do-everything EDC blade with an elevated appearance, you can do no better than this $45 knife.

Purchase: $45
