Meet the "N°08 Chaperon Pocket Knife"

Wood worker in France for the last 25+ years, Bruno Chaperon was trained at the famous French "Arts Décoratifs" and "Beaux-arts de Paris".
Mr. Chaperon has developed and patented the intricate "sinusoidal" marquetery design you see on the knife. This intricate technique assures that every single knife is unique.
This listing shows several examples of patterns offered. Opinel Gift Box included.

The flagship size of the collection!

The No8 is the most sold and versatile size in the ever growing line of Opinel folding knives.
This knife is small enough to be used as a pocket knife and its 3 1/4" blade prevents it from being considered a weapon in most states (check with your state).

This Knife features the Virobloc Safety rings. 
Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives sizes No6 through No12. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc has two sections, one fixed and one sliding. In addition to locking the blade open (safety while in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety on the go).

Opinel Safety Ring in action


Blade:12C27 Sandvik Stainless Steel

Handle: Any combination of the fallowing wood: Ebony, Rose wood, Violet wood, boxwood, olive wood, walnut.

Please not that since each knife is unique we cannot guaranty that the knife you will receive has a certain color or pattern.

Yatagan Style:The classic Opinel blade has adopted a Yatagan shape. The Yatagan shape is inspired by a traditional Turkish saber, the toe up. The blade is ground to an exclusive convex profile that ensures the strength of the blade and allows efficient regrinding.

12C27 modified stainless steel is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition of chrome and requires no special maintenance. Its carbon content of at least 0.40% provides an excellent cutting edge. We suggest you take a look at our F.A.Q where most common questions about Opinel knives are answered.
