Opinel - no.8 VRN Carbon Steel Knife


Opinel knives were created in 1890.

This beech handled, carbon bladed range is the original range with the addition of the Virobloc feature.

Virobloc is a safety feature, a locking ring which locks the blade in or out as required.

It is great for preventing blades closing upon vulnerable fingers.

For this reason (plus the fact its carbon blade is easily honed) it is favoured by Boy Scouts.

Opinel knives have high-grade, carbon steel blades which are easy to sharpen when dull.

They are simple, sturdy and cheap, the ideal multi-purpose tools.

This version has a 8.5cm blade.

Opinel knife

Unused as yet but seems to be ideal for the outdoor ramble and camping trip. Much lighter than many others

Brian Linklater
Cheap knife

Does the job well will wear out very quickly
I would think the blade hinges on a pin set in wood and don’t let it get wet it jams up , but it’s not a lot of money so thro it away and buy , another, modern way !!
