Opinel Chaperon No. 8 African Wood Handle

(2 reviews)
From Opinel, the creators of France's most famous knives, comes the No 08 Chaperon Knife. Invented by French cabinetmaker Bruno Chaperon, each knife is masterfully crafted through the marquetry process to achieve a unique handle on each knife.

Four different species of wood are delicately assembled together, achieving an original finish of contrasting shades and patterns. The sharp blade is fashioned from anti-corrosive Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel and then polished to achieve a mirror effect. An elegant knife of exceptional quality that shines during both use and decretive display.

Make your Opinel unique with a personalised engraving on the handle or knife blade.

Over 18 only. Your order will be subject to age verification on checkout and delivery.
