Opinel No.8 Nature Edition MioSHe
The relationship between humans and nature
This new limited edition biennial showcases the work of three artists and their vision of Nature.
MioSHe, or Antoine Martinet, is a French artist who draws and paints the relationship between the human, the urban, nature and space on wall and canvas. On the handle of the N°08 pocket knife, he pays homage to nature with a silhouette adopting the yogic posture and transforming themselves into a tree.
The charm handle is decorated using the sublimation technique, and the 8.5cm blade and ferrule are black, giving this knife an all the more unique look.
Opinel No.8 Nature Edition MioSHe Specifications & Features:
Martensitic stainless steel:
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 ...).
Matt black blade:
This black blade is matt and more resistant to rust than a classic stainless steel blade. This blade is more sensitive to the risk of scratching, be careful not to use abrasive products or sponges when you clean it.
Matt black locking ring:
Virobloc made in stainless steel with a specific black treatment which improves the protection against the corrosion. This treatment is scratch-sensitive, be careful not to use abrasive products or abrasive sponges when cleaning.
Black blade and ferrule
