The Opinel N°08 Bushwacker is a most versatile knife: essential for hiking, camping, DIY, fishing and hunting. With its alpine sheath that has a passing and a leather lace, it will follow you everywhere.
The stainless steel used in OPINEL blades is a grade optimized to guarantee both high corrosion resistance and high mechanical performance. Hardness 55-57 HRC. European origin.
The classic Opinel blade has adopted a Yatagan shape. The Yatagan shape is inspired by a traditional Turkish saber, the toe up. The blade is ground to an exclusive convex profile that ensures the strength of the blade and allows efficient regrinding.
Coming from French forests, this white wood with few veins is ideal for applying colour. The handle is varnished to be protected against moisture and dirt.
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).
