History of Opinel Knives
The Opinel knife brand was born in France in 1980 in the small village ofMaurienne in Savoy in the French Alps. The founder of the brand is Joseph Opinel who in the 80s made the first hunting knife that still bears his name today. In recent years, the Opinel brand has grown considerably and today in the French headquarters, over 5 million pieces are produced, all made in France.
Production of Opinel knives.
The Opinel knifebrand does not only produce hunting knives or outdoor knives. In fact, over the years the brand has also specialized in the production of kitchen knives. Specifically, we remember the line of Chef Opinel Parallele knives made of precious X50CrMoV15 steel to offer the best performance.
Obviously the most famous solutions of the brand remain the outdoor knives. Opinel is famous for making its classic lines both in stainless steel and carbon steel. Naming the two series "stainless steel" and "coal" identifying in the series of carbon knives, precisely those made of carbon steel.
In addition to these classic series, in the Opinel knife catalog you can also find special versions for outdoor, or luxury editions made with fine finishes, such as ebony wood or black blade. The French brand has also made many commemorative editions over the years. For example, we remember the Opinel knife n.8 "Cristoforo Colobo" or the versions made for the Tour De France.
Features of Opinel knives
Among the aspects that characterize Opinel knives we remember in particular the use of top quality steels. In fact, the French brand, despite offering its products at low prices, manages to maintain high quality standards and this is highly appreciated by its customers. Among the features that have contributed to the success of these hunting knives, we also remember the characteristic Virobloc locking system used in all folding knives of the brand.
In order to make Opinel knives even more functional, the French brand has always adopted a numerical cataloging system for its products. In fact, as it is possible to observe, each knife has its own number which serves to help the customer in the immediate identification of both the product and its size. The larger the number attributed to the knife, the greater the width of its blade.
