Opinel Beech Handle Pruning Knife N.8

Opinel Beech Handle Pruning Knife N.8


The Opinel beech handle pruning knife N.8 is a versatile gardener’s tool. The slightly curved blade easily chops through thin branches and is handy for trimming garden ties. The knife is also a trusty companion when you want to cut flowers.

This Opinel pruning knife has an 8cm blade. A 10cm pruning knife with a very curved blade is also available.

The modified Sandvik stainless-steel blade has a high carbon content and added chromium, for excellent cutting quality and resistance to corrosion. The handle is made from durable French beechwood and is varnished for resistance to water.

The Opinel family started as blacksmiths in Savoie, France in 1800. By 1890, Joseph Opinel had developed the first line of Opinel folding penknives, for which the company would soon become famous. The design is still true to the 200-year-old originals with just one little change – a rotating ‘cap’ where the blade meets the handle, so the knife can be locked open or closed. Opinel used their experience to make a series of high-quality gardening tools – most of which also fold away for safety in storage.
