Opinel has set the gold standard for high quality knives since the family company designed their first folding knife in 1892. All of their knives are still entirely manufactured in the heart of the Alps in their factory in Chambéry, France.
What do Alaskans do when the rain hits in the fall? We walk around the woods hunting for chanterelles, porcinis, and all the other delicious mushrooms our forests hold. It's like hiking but the reward is that much more delicious.
The Opinel No.08 Mushroom Knife is heralded by many foragers as THE mushroom knife to have. Its Sandvik stainless steel blade is curved for reaching around delicate stems and disrupting the ground as little as possible. An all-natural boar bristle brush is attached to the end of the comfortable handle to dust off dirt out in the forest or back in the kitchen at home.
The knife easily opens and locks closed with Opinel's patented Vibrobloc Locking System for repeated use and safety as you go about your walk or work in the kitchen. The lightweight varnished beechwood handle is strong and durable, made from sustainably managed French forests, and rounded to fit every hand.
Hand wash only. Do not immerse your knife in water, as this could warp the wooden handle. Dry the blade before closing.
