Opinel is a family-run company based in the Savoie region that produces wooden-handled knives from pocket knives to kitchen knives. It was established in 1890 and, in France, is synonymous with both simplicity and quality. A key characteristic of many of the knives is the Virobloc twistlock mechanism that allows the blade to be locked in either the open or closed position.
Opinel knives are rightly recognised as design classic. We have selected an edit of the Opinel knives we believe are essential kitchen equipment and best in class. Grab a set for yourself or as a gift; we assure you they will be well received as being in the best possible taste.
