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”. It’s now considered a design icon throughout the world.
Knives made in France
Since its creation in 1890, the company has been manufacturing its knives in the heart of the French Alps. Today our plant in Chambéry (Savoie, France) covers a surface area of almost 60,000 square-feet and employs 110 people, of which 60 work directly in production.
All our products (traditional pocket-knives with carbon steel and stainless steel blades, specialist pocket-knives, sharp slim pocket-knives, garden tools, elegant table knives, etc.) are entirely manufactured in our factory in Chambéry.
Except for the kitchen knives and table knives, the molds and cutting tools have been developed by Opinel and wooden handles are made in Chambéry. These different components are then assembled and sharpened in our plant in Portugal.
KNIVESATLANTA is dedicated to bringing you the highest quality knives and gear for your outdoor adventures, E.D.C. (every day carry), camp and kitchen, vintage and collector knives. We are proud to be an authorized dealer of Opinel knives.
