At the age of 18, Joseph Opinel manufactured a tool that would change his life and make his name go down in history. In 1890, succeeding a family business of edge-tool making, he invented a small pocket knife marking the beginning of Opinel. Seven years later, rising demand prompted the brand to diversify into twelve different sizes. Over time, this reliable accessory, produced in the French Alps, became a symbol of craftsmanship and a design icon. It received a gold medal at the International Alpine Exhibition in Turin, landed an entry in the dictionary and was even recognized by the Victoria and Albert Museum as one of the hundred best designed objects. Practical, elegant, and efficient, an Opinel Knife will come in handy in every outdoor adventure.> View more
