The Opinel knife is named after the Opinel Family from the Savoie region in the heart of the French Alps. In 1890, Joseph Opinel invented a small folding knife that would eventually become a must-have item of French "savoir-vivre" (living a good life while staying elegant and smart).
Today the classic Opinel folding knife with its Virobloc safety ring is a design icon and is still made in France.
