While always quintessentially French, the Opinel pocket knife is beloved all across the world. We hear often from happy members of the Opinel family, who share their stories in their own words, across many languages, continents apart.
They describe their Opinel knives as timeless companions, family heirlooms, serious tools, and the spark of fond memories of family, adventure, coming of age, and lifetimes of hard work.
We love hearing your stories, and we’re honored to make the knives that accompany your life, in any language, anywhere in the world life takes you. Here are a few of our favorites we had to share.

found a No8 at a roadside sale had seen a lot of use but a good carbon blade easy to sharpen and i like the safety ring because i cut a lot of cartons and plastic banding at work and at a fast pace sometimes. The thin gradual taper of the blade is perfect for cardboard / plastic / heavy cloth all in one tool. and it does not break like razor cutters always do.Great knife
