French-made Opinel has produced practical knives for generations. Their newly released ”brunch” knife follows suit with a stainless 4 ½ inch, partially serrated blade and comfortable vibrant-orange handle. The blade slices well and the slightly bulbous tip is perfectly designed for spreading butter and getting every last bit of jam out of the bottom of the jar. Beyond breakfast, it’s terrific for cheese boards and picnics; its thin flexible shape even makes it a great tool for icing cakes. We recommend hand washing and drying promptly to keep the handle in good shape.
