Opinel Folding Knife - N°10
Simple, sturdy, efficient and easy to use, this essential tool remains unchanged since 1890, but is unmatched in its design.
The No10 is a big folding knife that should not be considered a "pocket" knife. Many people have found that its size makes it a perfect every day steak knife that can be folded and stored in a kitchen drawer. Of course this knife has many other uses but please consider its size if you are in the market for a "pocket" knife.
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.
