Our most iconic size, the No.08, is the knife that started it all. Dating all the way back to 1890 when Joseph Opinel created a simple yet robust tool for the everyman, the No.08 has been featured in countless museums, books and galleries around the world. Whether you’re looking to sharpen your pencils, or prune your roses, the No. 08 has been a favorite of explorers, artists, farmers, and chefs alike. The colorama line features tinted and varnished hornbeam handles in a range of colors and comes equipped with a convenient lanyard you can easily attach to your bag, so you're never without an Opinel! This size features the Virobloc® safety ring.


8 cm secure blade with Virobloc double safety-ring.

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.

Hornbeam handle

Sourced from sustainable French forests, this white wood has few veins which makes it ideal for applying coloured varnish. The handle is varnished to protect it against moisture and dirt.

Safety ring

Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives from the N° 06. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc 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).
