Limited Edition No.08 Sampo Folding Knife

1 Review

Size Guide


The limited edition No.08 Sampo features a handle crafted with Curly Birch wood sustainably sourced from Finland.

A subspecies of the silver birch that grows in the Nordic countries, curly birch is particular to the Karelia region of Finland. With extreme growing conditions that modify the wood, the tree twists as it grows. Layers of soft and hard wood grow unevenly, creating the distinctive swirling, marble-like patterns of the wood grain.

Curly birch wood ranges from pale yellow to light brown, with a very unique appearance of swirling patterns.

Due to the unique nature of Curly Birch wood, veining may appear differently on knives. 

Only 300 available in the United States. 

This knife includes a custom designed gift box.

For over 130 years Opinel has been crafting knives and tools in the heart of the French Alps. Much like Joseph Opinel did from his workshop in 1890, today we still manufacture Opinel products from our factory in Chambery, France.


Little has changed since 1890. Rooted in history and a commitment to craftsmanship, we're still following in Joseph Opinel's footsteps nearly 130 years later. From our home in the Alps, we make tools designed to stand the test of time. We value the quaility of our knives and tools, and offer a limited lifetime warranty for all Opinel products. In the event of a manufacturer's defect or workmanship, Opinel will exchange the products affected.
