Opinel No 8, Edition FRANCE! by Ale Giorgini


The classic Opinel No 08 in a limited Edition by artist Ale Giorgini

For the collection Edition FRANCE! Opinel invited three renowned artists from three different countries to create their own design for the handle of the iconic Opinel No 08 knife. Each of these artists has implemented their own vision of France.
Ale Giorgini, from Vicenza in Italy, teaches at the IED - European Design Institute in Turin and at the Comics School in Padua, among other places. His drawings are published in renowned magazines and newspapers such as the Boston Globe, L'Espresso and Il Corriere della Serra.

His motif of a pair of lovers in a typical French café is applied by high-quality sublimation printing to the beechwood handle of the knife with a stainless steel blade. Like all Opinel No 08, the edition also features the unique Virobloc system, which allows the blade made of stainless steel to be easily and reliably locked in place. The design is limited to 7,000 pieces worldwide and each knife is individually numbered.
