The Opinel bread knife will revolutionise your bread slicing. The knife's beautifully sharp blade glides through crusty sourdough, French baguettes and dense rye bread with equal ease. And with absolutely no squashing! 

More formally called Opinel No 116 Parrallele, after it's elegant straight handle,  the serrated stainless-steel blade is slightly curved for a more comfortable slicing motion. It’s made from a stainless steel called ‘X50CrMoV15’ that’s highly resistant to corrosion, so your Opinel bread knife will stay in top condition for years to come. And the elegant handle is made from durable French beech wood.

You'll be thrilled with your new slicing abilities when this bread knife arrives. This Opinel bread knife was also chosen as one of The Independent newpaper's top 10 bread knives "The Savoyarde knife-makers deliver great-quality kit for very decent prices [...]. Those with [..] a mid-range budget (or just stylish sensibilities) should think about Opinel’s bread knife".

Please note, this knife is hand wash only. To know more on how to take care your kitchen knife, read our blog here.

The Opinel family started as blacksmiths in Savoie, France in 1800. Although famous for their folding penknives, their expertise in blade making naturally led to a future in kitchen knives. Using the same high quality materials and over 200-years of know-how, you can now enjoy a touch of Opinel excellence every time you cook.
