Outdoors company Opinel created the new Number Eight knife, a straightforward pocket knife with a durable and reliable steel blade.

Inspired by Joseph Opinel's traditional design from 1890, the knife has a rotating lock and a stylish wooden handle. Available in a variety of shades and types of wood, the handle was cut to fit perfectly in any hand, making it comfortable and easy to use. Using recycled wood shavings from the factory, the ebony and walnut shades offer a one-of-a-kind design on every single handle.

With a light top, gold accent and dark shaded end, the new Number Eight Knife may look like a simple utility knife -- but in reality, it gives consumers a durable blade that rarely needs to be sharpened.
