Opinel’s most iconic size, the No.08, is the knife that started it all. Dating back to 1890, when Joseph Opinel created a simple yet robust tool for the everyman, the No.08 has been featured in countless museums, books, and galleries worldwide. Whether you’re looking to sharpen your pencils or prune your roses, the No. 08 has been a favorite of explorers, artists, farmers, and chefs. The Colorama line features tinted, and varnished hornbeam handles in a range of shades and comes equipped with a convenient lanyard you can easily attach to your bag, so you’re never without an Opinel! This size features the Virobloc safety ring.
