When it comes to an Opinel pocket knife, there’s no wrong choice. But some choices are, let’s say, extra right. With this upgrade, you’ll get an Opinel Black Oak No. 8 Knife. It has a matte black blade made of anodized, corrosion-resistant stainless steel attached to a gorgeous black oak handle which, due to its high tannin content, is also extremely resistant to pests and fungi. You’ll also get an Opinel 10cm Sharpening Stone quarried and crafted in Italy ((L)4" x (W)15/16" (D)3/16"), and an Opinel Sheath made from durable synthetic leather with a convenient belt loop. You’ll always have your pocket knife sharp and ready to go when you need it.
A good knife will serve you well for decades, but even the best ones — like Opinel's terrific pocket knives — need a tune-up every now and again. But with one of these, you can keep any blade as sharp as the day you bought it.
The stone is sourced from Lombardi, Italy, where the quarries have been famous for producing the world's most effective sharpening gear ever since the 15th century thanks to a perfectly uniform blend of quartz and carbonates.
