Opinel | Limited Edition #08 Tour de France 2022 - Sublimation

This knife is one of two from Opinel's limited edition Tour de France 2022 collection. It features vibrant colour graphics designed by art director of 200 magazine and passionate cyclist Manivelle (Matthieu Lifschitz).

Inspired by the tour's major jersey designs, the knife's sublimation decor pays homage to best climber and sprinter of the Tour de France. It features a beech wood handle and Sandvik 12C27 modified stainless steel blade. Comes with cardboard pouch with Tour sticker.

Specifications
  • Blade length: 8.5cm
  • Sandvik 12C27 modified stainless steel: It is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition of chrome and requires no special maintenance. Its carbon content of at least 0.40% gives excellent cutting edge.
  • Blade hardness: 57-58 HRC
  • Blade: The classic Opinel blade has adopted a Yatagan shape. The Yatagan shape is inspired by a traditional Turkish sabre, the toe up. The blade is ground to an exclusive convex profile that ensures the strength of the blade and allows efficient regrinding.
  • Handle: Beech is the most commonly used wood for the manufacture of Opinel handles. From France, beech wood is hard, durable and easy to work. With a homogeneous appearance, its light colour varies from yellow to pink. It is characterised by the presence of numerous small dark dashes.
  • Safety ring: Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives from the N° 06. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc has two sections, one fixed and one sliding. In addition to locking the blade open (safety in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety in transport).
