Joseph Opinel


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.


The Opinel Knife is virtually unchanged since its inception in 1890. Today they are manufactured in the town of Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne in the Savoie region of France, near the original workshop.


Originally sold as a simple working man's knife, the Opinel
has since become an iconic symbol of French culture and lifestyle.

OpinelPablo Picasso used an Opinel to carve his sculptures, while Roger Frison-Roche, the Savoyard alpine guide and mountaineer, never made an ascent without carrying an Opinel along.


Historic Opinel advertisementIn 2006 Opinel was recognised in "Phaidon Design Classics" as one of the most successful 999 designs of all time by a panel of international designers. 


With a classic and unique design these French country knives have a natural wood handle, and models over 7cm in length also feature a safety locking ring.



Available in both carbon and stainless steel blades in a huge range of sizes. From just a 3.5cm blade, right up to 12cm.


Simplicity at its finest.
