About Opinel

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. These knives are designed in Savoie, France and manufactured in Portugal.
