Description
OP8: N08 Folding Knife, Carbon Steel
Opinel
 
The Opinel N08 is the most popular and versatile size in the ever growing line of Opinel folding knives. This knife is small enough to be used as a pocket knife and its 3.25" blade is capable for most all of your cutting needs. Stabilized beechwood is ultra resistant and comfortably contoured to fit the hand. The blade is made from X90 Carbon steel, with a high carbon content, which is what makes it possible to achieve the excellent hardness after heat treatment, guaranteeing the strength of the cutting edge, resistance to wear and easy of sharpening. The hardness obtained after heat treatment are theoretically slightly greater in steels that do not contain chrome. The cutting strength is therefore better with a carbon steel knife and sharpening is much easier than a stainless steel blades which contain chrome. However, carbon has a low resistance to corrosion caused by moisture, which means that certain precautionary measures are necessary when using and storing a carbon knives: we recommend that you avoid damp environments and that you dry the blade after each use.
Safety
  • This knife features the Virobloc Safety ring. The Virobloc safety ring was invented and implemented in 1955. This simple yet effective locking system greatly improved the original knife.The ability to help prevent the blade from opening when closed was added to the Virobloc in 2000.

A classic is a classic for a reason
What can I say about the Opinel No. 8 that hasn't been said before? Nothing, I'm sure. So I'll just reiterate. This is a design classic, it is simple and practical and functional. She is a plain Jane that makes up for her lack of outside beauty by being a no nonsense and hard working blue collar gal. You need to slice an apple? She can do that. Cut cordage? Yup. Open a box? Of course. Sharpen a pencil, prepare a campfire meal, clean a trout, open a letter, trim frayed pant leggings? Well, yes. Duh, it's a knife. A pokey stabby cutty kind. Good simple and sharp carbon steal that grandpappy would approve of, a safe and effective lock up that mom would appreciate, and an honest wooden handle that Jesus himself would approve of. This is a tool. A tool for utilitarian purposes. It is not for killing zombies. It is not for prying open crates of military surplus ammo (get a crowbar doomsday preppers!) It is not tactical (whatever the f*@%! that means in real life) and it is not the newest, hottest, knife sluts wet dream. It is a knife, and it is a thing of beauty. Just get it.

Pros: Weight, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
good serviceable knife with no frills
The knife is fine, size good, weigh good. The only thing i miss on it is the safety feature of a blade lock so that it doesn't close unexpectedly.

Cons: None
Great knife for camping
This is just an overall great knife. Durable and easy to use. Nothing fancy to it. I own several Opinel knives and they never fail to live up to their reputation.
