Mushroom Hunting Knife
Net weight 1.6 oz.
Made in France
Versatile in its use, classic in its design and construction, the Opinel No. 8 Mushroom has been carried by mushroom hunters for generations. A forager’s delight, the Opinel No. 8 Mushroom knife is designed to harvest whatever treasures you might find in the woods (or your garden). The curved stainless steel blade makes tidy work of plucking mushrooms. Use the boar bristle brush dust dirt and debris from your chanterelles and Hen of the Woods. Opinel knives are designed to stand the test of time; some carry Opinel knives handed down from parents and grandparents.
Opinel's stainless steel blades are made of Sandvik 12C27 modified stainless steel. It is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition of chromium and requires no special maintenance. Its carbon content of at least 0.40% provides an excellent cutting edge.
Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives as of 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)
To prevent a negative impact on the environment (pollution from transport, deforestation), 95% of the wood for handles comes from sustainably managed French forests.
