One of the most unusual Opinel gift knives of the Tradition line is model No. 8 with an ebony handle. This model in terms of characteristics is fully consistent with identical samples of this line. It, like most Opinel knives, is equipped with a high-strength stainless steel blade with a hardness of 57-58 HRC. Also, Opinel No. 8 with an ebony handle is equipped with a branded virobloc lock, which allows you to securely fix the blade in the closed or open position, ensuring maximum safety during operation and transportation of the knife.
As it became clear from the description, this model differs from a knife with a standard configuration by the presence of an ebony handle. This material has an extremely attractive appearance and has been used for quite a few years for the production of a wide variety of souvenirs, jewelry and simply decorative items. In this case, the use of such material allows you to position the knife rather than as a tool for daily wear, but as a gift for a loved one or an addition to your collection, but nothing prevents you from using this blade for everyday tasks.
The advantages of an ebony handle, in addition to a beautiful appearance, are its strength and moisture resistance, which allows you to use the knife even in the most difficult conditions.
Due to the presence of a small wooden case in the set, Opinel No. 8 with an ebony handle is extremely convenient to store or give as a gift to your loved one.
