No. 8 Mushroom Knife $52 CAD
The Sitka x Opinel folding mushroom knife is the perfect tool for morels, ceps, chanterelles, and trumpets picking.
Rather than simply pluck mushrooms from the ground, responsible mushroom hunters slice the stem neatly at the base to avoid damaging the mycelium, the delicate root-like fibers from which a new mushroom can grow. The wire brush is ideal for cleaning off the mushrooms you find.
- Blade length: 8 cm
- Weight: 68 g
- Boar bristle brush

The handle is made of Oak from France. It is a hardwood, very resistant, including to insects and fungi thanks to a high tannin content.
The blade uses Sandvik 12C27 modified stainless steel. It is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition of chrome and requires no special maintenance. Its carbon content of at least 0.40% gives an excellent cutting edge.
Made by: Opinel, S.A. - Made in France since 1890
Lightly pass the blade of your OPINEL under warm water and rub with a sponge and washing up liquid. Rinse the blade again with warm water, being careful not to wet the wooden handle too much. Let the blade dry before closing.
