The Opinel No8 is the most versatile size of the Opinel folding knives. This knife is just the right size (3 1/4" blade length) to be used as a pocket knife--ideal for impromptu wine and cheese in the French countryside or picnics at the winery.
This knife has a stainless steel blade. The blade will not rust, however try to avoid leaving your Opinel knife in damp environments for too long and dry the blade after each use. The handle is made of wood and may expand and contract with extreme humidity (or lack of) and will temporarily affect the mechanism. Hand-wash only.
