For over 130 years Opinel has been crafting knives and tools in the heart of the French Alps. Much like Joseph Opinel did from his workshop in 1890, today we still manufacture Opinel products from our factory in Chambery, France.
With the No.08 Artist Limited Edition IV Nature - a thematic limited edition collection released biannually - Opinel has collaborated with three artists whose work showcases aspects of nature through differing origins and inspirations.
Whether in their artistic practices and processes, or in the use of these elements in their compositions, Nature is in the spotlight! Edible and wild plants, aromatics, mushrooms or ﬂoral compositions will be featured in sublimated illustrations on the hornbeam handles of No.08 knives.
Little has changed since 1890. Rooted in history and a commitment to craftsmanship, we're still following in Joseph Opinel's footsteps nearly 130 years later. From our home in the Alps, we make tools designed to stand the test of time. We value the quaility of our knives and tools, and offer a limited lifetime warranty for all Opinel products. In the event of a manufacturer's defect or workmanship, Opinel will exchange the products affected.
