Why Choose Opinel Knives?

When inventing the famous Opinel pocket knife, Joseph Opinel found a way to perfectly marry simplicity with the beauty of the French Alps to create the ideal pocket knives for everyday use.

Not only does an
Opinel knife come with 130 years of history, but it's also pretty cool to have in your kit. The Alpine sheath is a stylish way to keep your blade close and safe, while the No. 8 Black Oak knife makes you feel like a survivor out in the elements.
