OPINEL N°08 Garden Knife
It is the ideal tool for weeding or picking lettuce and dandelions. Its pointy toe and reinforced blade make it indispensable in the garden.
Blade - Made from Sandvik stainless steel, it is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition of chrome and requires no special maintenance. Its carbon content of at least 0.40% gives excellent cutting edge.
Handle - Beech is the most commonly used wood for the manufacture of Opinel handles. From France, our beech is hard, durable and easy to work. With a homogeneous appearance, its light color varies from yellow to pink. It is characterized by the presence of numerous small dark dashes.
Safety Ring - 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).
Dimensions - 3cm dia, 19cm long when opened, 11cm long when closed, blade 8.5cm
