Opinel N°8 Oak Black Studio Knife
Black goes with everything.
A new release from a classic French knife maker, the Opinel No. 8 Black Oak Folding Knife is a thing of beauty: Its matte black blade is made of anodized Sandvik steel, giving it both an air of mystery and a corrosion-proof layer. It’s as functional as it is beautiful: The Virobloc safety ring featured on this blade was invented in 1955 and is now an iconic Opinel feature. The twisting ring is a simple solution with a complex implementation that keeps the blade safely open or closed. Paired with a French oak wood handle, you get a sturdy, gorgeous tool that you’ll love pulling out for all occasions: Slicing peaches you’ve just picked moments ago, cutting into the picnic mimolette, or whittling down some wood chips for a fire under the stars.
