Family-owned company Opinel in the French Alps is famous for its iconic folding knives
, which are so popular that the producer released a set of dedicated kitchen knives—the Intempora line—based on its original designs. They are made from high-grade Swedish Sandvik steel, which is anti-corrosive, holds an edge well and tunes up easily on any sharpening device. The full-tang blades extend throughout the entire length of the handles, so the knives are sturdy and well-balanced, while the handles feature a triangular profile called a V-grip that promotes a secure and comfortable grip.
This three-piece set includes a nimble 4-inch Paring Knife
; straight-edged 6-inch Carving Knife
; and sturdy 8-inch Chef's Knife
. The Paring Knife is perfect for small jobs, with a finely tapered tip allow for precision cutting; also, the short blade in proportion to the longer handle allows for maximum maneuverability. The medium-sized Carving Knife blade is narrower from cutting edge to spine, so it slides easily through foods and meets less resistance than other knives. Finally, the Chef's Knife features a gently curved on the blade for an easy rocking motion, while its ergonomic handle will fit comfortably in large or small hands.
