Opinel Knives

The story Opinel is one of the fabulous destiny of a little Savoyard folding knife invented by Joseph Opinel in 1890. It quickly became an item of every day life and elevated itself as a world design icon. A family story at the heart of the French Alps, for 133 years.
It's aesthetics remained unchanged for over a century, with a design that is one of the most successful of all time. Opinel was recognised by the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1985 for the best-designed items in the world. They are still made in France today.
