French knife brand, Opinel, and American outdoor outfitter, Topo Designs, launched an adventure-ready collaboration based on the Opinel N° 08 pocket knife. The Opinel x Topo Designs limited edition merges a century-old classic folding knife with a new contemporary aesthetic.
The knife sports a bright pop of red on the wooden handle, an attached utility cord and a black, stainless steel blade. And with a limited run of just 500, each Topo Designs x Opinel Folding No. 8 Knife will be etched with a number on the base of the 3.25-inch blade.
Made from titanium nitride coated stainless steel, the scratch-resistant blade has tremendous cutting quality and features a Virobloc safety system that locks the blade open or closed. The natural wood handle with a custom print is finished with a 1.5mm paracord lanyard.
The Topo Designs branded sheath holds the folded knife and rounds out the project. Available online at both the Topo Designs and Opinel websites, as well as the Topo Designs retail locations, priced at $49 USD.
