An Opinel is bought somewhere in the world every ten seconds.
This simple, everyday object is complicated to manufacture. Over twenty operations are needed and every stage is inspected meticulously.
“Shape gives birth to function”: the new Opinel models retain the values established by the Opinel founder, Joseph Opinel: simplicity, reliability, efficiency.
All our products (traditional penknives with carbon steel or stainless steel blades, thin-bladed penknives, garden tools, table knives) are manufactured in our Chambéry factory in Savoie, except for the large kitchen knives which have been developed by Opinel but are manufactured by a partner in Portugal.
