Gift Guide: Opinel No8 Carbon Pocket Knife


This knife belongs on every boat, in every tackle box, and in every pocket. It is a classic French knife that is a perfect work horse. Made of just 4 pieces (blade, handle, rivet, and collar) it has a unique collar that can be twisted to fix the knife blade. The carbon steel blades come with a great edge and hold it. This is the perfect boat knife for both cutting up an apple and perfectly filleting a fish. It is a steal for under $15 dollars and you won’t curse to harshly if you ever accidentally drop it overboard. Available from Opinel USA for $15.
