A good pocket knife is a must for camping trips. Otherwise, how are you going to shank a bear, or open that bag of marshmallows? Not only is a pocket knife handy for outdoor adventures but it is a daily essential. Anyone who carries a pocket knife will tell you that it is one of the most useful things that they own. The Opinel X Topo Designs N° 08 Knife is an excellent all-purpose pocket knife.
French blacksmith Joseph Opinel created his first pocket knife in the late 19th century. His design was both functional and beautiful. Colorado-based outdoor retailer Topo Designs collaborated with Opinel to bring their original N° 08 Knife into the 21st century.
This versatile and contemporary knife has an 8.5cm stainless-steel titanium nitride blade. The blade features chromium to prevent corrosion and scratches. A Virobloc® safety system keeps the blade locked in either the open or closed position. The French blonde wood handle features a custom Topo Designs print and comes with a 1.5mm printed paracord lanyard.
Each knife comes with a custom Topo Designs carrying sheath. The sheath features a secure zipper closure and has enough space to carry cash or other small items. It is lined with Cordura cloth liner. A back webbing strap ensures that the sheath stays attached to your belt or bag.
Having one of these handy knives tucked away for your next adventure is a smart thing to do. Topo Designs and Opinel will produce 500 of these individually numbered knife sets.
