No.8 Trekking Knife - Natural Beech
Coming Soon £18.00
The classic Trekking Knife from Opinel in natural beech. Size No. 8, perfect for whittling, wood craft and easy carry.
The classic Opinel blade has what they refer to as a Yatagan shape, inspired by a traditional Turkish saber. The blade is ground to an exclusive convex profile that ensures the strength of the blade and allows efficient regrinding. Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring has two sections, one fixed and one sliding. In addition to locking the blade open (safety in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety in transport).
Beech is the most commonly used wood for the manufacture of Opinel handles. From France, their beech is hard, durable and with a beautiful light colour that is characterised by the presence of numerous small dark dashes.
