This limited edition No.08 folding knife features a handle made of Arizona Ironwood – a rare semi-fossilised wood, native to the Sonoran Desert – and a copper-colored PVD coated stainless steel blade. A unique and precious wood, Ironwood is remarkable for its exceptional density. With varied nuances in the Ironwood, each handle of this collection differs slightly in color, ranging from lighter browns to deeper reddish browns. The copper finish on the blade (and Virobloc ring) is achieved through PVD coating, reinforcing the strength of the blade and creates resistance to scratches and wear.



Only 800 were made. Each blade is numbered, and comes in an oak wood gift box.



  • 8.5 cm Sandvik Stainless Steel 12C27 Mod POV coated
  • Handle made from reclaimed Ironwood imported from Arizona
  • Virobloc safety ring to lock the blade when open and closed




The Opinel folding knife is a popular everyday item whose aesthetics and functionality have won over generations of users. Invented in 1890 by Joseph Opinel, on the banks of a stream overlooked by the Savoie Mountains, its simplicity, robustness and functionality make it a noble tool. It has remained unchanged for over a century, with a design that is one of the most successful of all time. For this reason, Opinel was recognised by the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1985 as one of the best-designed items in the world alongside the Porsche 911 and the Rolex watch.   Opinel's extensive range goes beyond their traditional carbon steel folding knives to include a stainless steel range, gardening and outdoor cooking knives, multi-functional folders, a Junior range for children and a Luxury line-up with handles crafted from exotic woods and horn bone.   As well as the Outdoor folding knife range, Opinel also manufacture a large collection of Kitchen knives to aid in food preparation and Table knives for everyday dining. Like the Outdoor range, their Kitchen and Table knives are manufactured using high quality steels and handle materials to provide years of comfortable and reliable use.
