Opinel No.08 is not a cologne or a perfume. It is a standard for any collector, user, or aficionado of the sharpest kind. Opinel No. 08 is one of many from the French company that started 130 years ago and now is a staple with their Beechwood handle and XC90 steel blade. The no-nonsense Virobloc Locking Ring is simple and safe to use for almost any person. With a modest 3.28in (8.3312cm) blade, the knife stays classic and refined while still being useful and tough. It is a great first knife. It is a fantastic forever knife with a limited lifetime warranty.
