Joseph Opinel designed his first pocket knife in 1890, in Savoie, in the French Alps. He created a tool that was as robust and functional as it was simple and beautiful. Today, that same pocket knife is an iconic design object : instantly recognizable, imminently useful, and beloved by generations. Designed to stand the test of time, Opinel knives and tools are still made with Opinel’s original dedication to craftsmanship and quality.
