A small, lockable knife that's essential for activities such as fishing.

The new version of the Effilé 8 padauk features a more urban blade with a more rounded tip, as well as a moisture-resistant, low-maintenance padauk handle. The mirror polished 8 cm blade makes this small pocket knife especially elegant. The ferrule is branded with the new logo and locks the blade in the open and closed positions. It's the ideal knife for fishing enthusiasts.
Made in France


Technical specifications

Hardness 55-57 HRC. European origin.
The stainless steel used in OPINEL blades is a grade optimized to guarantee both high corrosion resistance and high mechanical performance. 
The blade offers excellent sharpness and high resistance to abrasion (wear) which allows it to withstand regular contact with hard materials, such as ceramics, before requiring re-sharpening. Stainless steel has the advantage of requiring no special maintenance under ordinary conditions of use, unlike carbon steel. Nevertheless, it can meet its limits when it is put in prolonged contact with an aggressive environment (acid, salt water, detergent ...).

8 cm

The Padouk is a dense African wood with a thin grain. Its colour varies from purple-brown to pinky with purple veins.

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).
