Originally designed for filleting fish, this slender knife from French company Opinel makes quick work of any general task. The 10-centimeter blade—just shy of 4 inches—is large enough to cut loaves of bread, slice fruit and do anything else a picnic, beach trip or BBQ can throw at it. It’s as good for trimming twine or opening packages as it is as carving paper-thin slices of sausage or sawing through a tough baguette. We especially love Opinel's ingenious “virobloc” collar-style lock, which firmly holds the blade in place by twisting sideways—it's far easier to use than most any other locking-blade knife and basically removes any risk of the blade folding onto exposed fingers. The Swedish Sandvik steel used for the blade is durable, impervious to corrosion and holds an edge for eternity, while the ergonomic olive wood handle feels great in the hand and develops a beautiful patina over time.
Since Joseph Opinel crafted his first pocket knife in 1890, family company Opinel has produced iconic knives out of the French Alps, with clean, cutting-edge designs, sturdy construction and remarkable economy. In fact, their pocket knives are such a classic that the French refer to folding knives as Opinels in the way Americans refer to tissues as Kleenex.Shop All
