Resists everything, nothing can resist it.
Opinel went high-tech with space age materials. This heavy duty survival knife features a 2.5 mm thick 12C27 sandvik blade, a thick serrated area, an integrated 4 seasons 110 db survival whistle and a shackle key.
The handle features a non-slip area (colored area) and can resist extreme temperatures (-40c to + 80c).
Opinel No8 is the most versatile size in the ever growing line of folding knives.
This knife is small enough to be used as a pocket knife and its 3 1/4' blade prevent it from being considered a weapon in most states (check with your state).
Blade:12C27 Sandvik Stainless Steel
Handle: Fiberglass-reinforced polyamide withstands shocks, humidity, and extreme temperatures(-40°F à +176°F). Pealess survival whistle functions in all weathers (110 decibels).
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.
