Opinel Garden Knife
The classic Opinel retractable knife, with a stainless steel blade.
Designed for use in the garden; either for weeding or cutting vegetables. This knife has a varnished wooden handle and pointed blade.
Since 1890, Opinel has been synonymous with a nomadic art of living. In a pocket, backpack, kitchen drawer or on the table, natural spirit, moments of sharing and complicity.
The Opinel Knife is virtually unchanged since its inception in 1890. Today they are manufactured in the town of Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne in the Savoie region of France, near the original workshop.
Originally sold as a simple working man's knife, the Opinel has since become an iconic symbol of French culture and lifestyle.
Pablo Picasso used an Opinel to carve his sculptures, while Roger Frison-Roche, the Savoyard alpine guide and mountaineer, never made an ascent without carrying an Opinel along.
Simplicity at its finest.
