Since 1890, in a pocket, backpack, kitchen drawer or on the table, Opinel has been synonymous with a nomadic art of living, natural spirit, moments of sharing and complicity. An Opinel Knife is bought somewhere in the world every ten seconds.
This simple, everyday object is complicated to manufacture. Over twenty operations are needed and every stage is inspected meticulously.
Each and every Opinel model retains the values established by the Opinel founder, Joseph Opinel: simplicity, reliability, efficiency. All our traditional penknives with Carbon Steel or Stainless Steel Blades are manufactured in Opinel’s Chambéry factory in Savoie, France.
