When it comes to camping, adventures are invariably made all the more enjoyable if you’ve got the right kit for the trip and so far as cooking and general handiness is concerned, a good knife is a must. As leading purveyors of camping accessories and adventure wares, Topo Designs would always be one of our first ports of call and this has proven to be the right decision given just how great their collaboration with knife makers Opinel has turned out.
The Topo Designs x Opinel 08 Knife Package is another fine example of the Colorado based brand seeking out other like minded pedlars of awesomeness to produce a first class piece and for those looking for a robust, infinitely cool and supremely functional knife for their next camping trip, this is going to tick all of the right boxes.
A Knife to Remember
Expertly commingling old with new, the Topo Designs x Opinel 08 Knife Package merges a century-old classic folding knife with a new contemporary aesthetic and each knife emerging from this collaboration comes complete with a custom carrying sheath, made in an instantly recognisable Topo Designs style.
The Topo Designs x Opinel 08 Knife Package has a stunning knife which boasts an 8.5cm titanium nitride coated stainless steel blade which is throughly robust through its impressive scratch-resistantance and it delivers exceptional cutting quality. The Virobloc® safety system is an important addition to the design and will lock the blade in either the open or closed position. A real stand out feature of this collaboration between Topo Designs and Opinel is the glorious looking, natural wood handle which has a custom print and is completed with a highly functional 1.5mm paracord lanyard.
For those who love to camp and also want to come prepared, having one of these cracking Topo Designs x Opinel 08 Knife Packages safely tucked away for any adventure seems like the logical thing to do. This superb little accessory is a limited edition offering (with just 500 being made) so, if you’ve liked what you’ve seen, you’ll need to move quickly to make sure you get your hands on one of these great looking knives.
Just as important as the knife itself is the great looking carry case which Topo Designs have made in their traditional style and which serves as the perfect means of porting around your first class knife. This superb case boasts enough spare room to carry your cash or various small items and a back webbing strap which makes sure that it securely attaches to a belt or bag.
We’re big fans of Topo Designs here at Coolector HQ and always make sure to keep a beady eye out for any new collaborations that they’re working on as they are invariably a cut above – with this joining forces with Opinel certainly no exception. So, for any adventurous, woodsman looking out for a first class new knife for your woodland wanders, look no further because they don’t come much better than this limited edition offering.
