About

Nestled in the heart of the French Mountains there used to lie the sleepy hamlet of Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne where 220 years ago, father and son blacksmiths, Victor-Amédée and Daniel Opinel were, unbeknownst to them, beginning the legacy of Opinel Knives. 

Fast forward 100 years later, when the industry was booming with machinery and manufacturing processes as far as the eye could see. Daniel’s eldest son, Joseph, had a passion for these machine-led practices  - much to the chagrin of his father - and wanted to combine his family history with blacksmithing as well as his passion for innovative technologies. Joseph spent his free time refining the shape of a small pocket knife, delicate and well-made but using machines that could speed the process up exponentially. He succeeded, and so the legendary Opinel knife was born.

The Opinel knife is a popular everyday item whose aesthetics and functionality have won over generations of users. It has remained unchanged for over a century, with a design that is one of the most successful of all time as well as reliability and company values to boot. They may be 130 years old, but they’re still as sharp and adaptable as ever as the premier knives of France.
