Product Description

Perfect for grafting trees, trimming, or cutting:

  • The Pruning No. 8 is a qualitative tool for mountaineers and gardeners alike. Its shape allows for a variety of grafting, incising, pruning, and trimming. The slightly curved blade is ideal for picking fruits, and flowers. Its blade is 8 cm long and its handle is comfortable, and will remain so even after long hours of work.

This Knife features the Virobloc Safety rings.

  • Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives sizes No6 through No12. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc has two sections, one fixed and one sliding. In addition to locking the blade open (safety while in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety on the go).

Handle: Beechwood

  • Beech is the most commonly used wood for the manufacture of Opinel handles. From France, our beech is hard, durable and easy to work. With a homogeneous appearance, its light color varies from yellow to pink. It is characterized by the presence of numerous small, – dark dashes.

Yatagan Style:

  • The classic Opinel blade has adopted a Yatagan shape. The Yatagan shape is inspired by a traditional Turkish saber, the toe up. The blade is ground to an exclusive convex profile that ensures the strength of the blade and allows efficient regrinding.

Knife Care:

  • 12C27 modified stainless steel is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition of chrome and requires no special maintenance. Its carbon content of at least 0.40% provides an excellent cutting edge.
