Description 

The 2022 No.08 Tour de France limited edition folding knife is a graphic collaboration with Manivelle (Matthieu Lifschitz), passionate cyclist and art director of 200 Magazine (a French road biking magazine). The intention behind this collaboration was to highlight the strong graphic motifs that are emblematic of the Tour de France.

The “Les Maillots” edition pays tribute to the iconic jerseys worn by the leaders in each category during the race. The yellow (leader), green (best sprinter), and red polka dot (best climber) are displayed on the No.08 folding knife via the sublimation technique. Delivered in a blue gift box with an official Tour de France sticker.

The “Landmarks” edition tells the story of the Tour de France through the iconic landmarks and symbols that encapsulate the tour; the Arc de Triomphe and Mont Ventoux, paired with graphics symbolizing the elements of water, rain, and mist. A yellow leather lanyard pays tribute to the primary color of the Tour de France. Delivered in a kraft paper sleeve with an official Tour de France sticker.

A celebration of cycling and French culture, the Tour de France limited edition knives are fun collectors items, and make for a great daily carry for the cycling enthusiast in your life!
