We’ve just re-stocked our range of Opinel knives. There’s a great kitchen knife, Japanese style with a heavy blade that is almost cleaver-like yet very sharp. A sturdy bread knife designed to handle real bread. The perfect paring knife with a decent sized handle and long riveted tang, sharp-as—we use it all the time. A new vegetable peeler that is not designed to fall to bits, has a decent sized handle, and it can be sharpened too. The folding pruning saw with Japanese style triple-bevel teeth that cuts on the pull-stroke, very efficient. The folding picnic knife features a very sharp stainless steel blade with a round tip that is great for spreading as well as cutting. And finally a great folding knife, the No8 carbon steel blade with a brilliant blade lock, very sharp and good edge holding, it’s light, sturdy, and simple.
Made in the same area in France since 1890 (we like continuity of production!) these simple yet highly evolved knives use plantation timber for their handles—the kitchen knives being dishwasher safe.
