The No.08 is our most iconic size. The shape and size that started it all back in 1890, the No.08 has been featured in countless museums, books, and galleries around the world. The stainless steel blade is highly anti-corrosive so it will hold up to harsh environments and is easy to sharpen. Keep the knife in your pocket, purse, or toolbox and we are certain you'll love it for years to come.
Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives sizes. 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).
