Opinel’s Iconic No. 8 EDC Knife Gets Elite Ebony & Aluminum Upgrades

Oct 28, 2019

Category: Gear

Opinel has been a staple of the knifemaking industry since long before everyday carry was even a concept. And their offerings are about as iconic and reliable as they come — and we highly recommend that everyone own at least one of their pocket knives. Now, one of their most popular designs, the No. 8, is getting an exclusive and elite limited edition upgrade they’ve called the Ellipse.

A lot of the hallmarks that made this offering (and many of their others) so great are still present — including a 12C27 Sandvik steel Turkish saber-inspired clip point blade with a nail nick for manual deployment, the brand’s signature Virobloc safety ring, and that instantly-recognizable silhouette. But its handle has been significantly enhanced through the inclusion of exquisite and rare obsidian-colored ebony wood with an integrated aluminum plate. Set to ship in November, this elite everyday carry knife can be yours for $120.

Purchase: $120
