OPINEL

Opinel Canada, Knives
Simplicity, Design, Performance. Made in France. Since 1890.

My outdoors-enthusiast brother turned me onto these knives. He always carries one in his pocket The design is simple and effective. They look great. They work great. They're sharp and easy to maintain. They fold easily and smoothly, and they feature a simple and yet very effective rotating locking mechanism, locking the blade closed or open. They're affordable. In short, they almost the perfect tool for outdoor use, and over the years they've become a favourite pocket knife and tool for people from all walks of life: They're used in the home, office/business, and outdoors, for everything from hunting and fishing to mountain climbing, gardening, cooking, and as an everyday working tool. And since even the most affordable models look great and work just as well as the fancier models, they make fantastic gifts, with options from the simple and functional to the sleek and sexy with high-end woods, finishes, and gift sets available.
Try one, you'll be an Opinel user and fan for life!

Opinel, Knife Construction

Tradition Series
The original design. Rugged and unique looking, it's a real work-horse. It's THE defining Opinel. The blade is straighter and wider than the Effilé series, which means it's stronger overall and has more surface area. It makes a great all-around pocket knife.

Effilés "Slim Line" Series
If the Tradition series are the rugged outdoorsmen of the family, these are the elegant city dwellers. At home in the office or fishing kit, they make fantastic fillet knives for the fishing enthusiast in your life, and the elegant and slim shape make them a comfortable and good-looking all-around pocket knife.

Both styles are really great knives -- the choice of style simply comes down to personal preference and intended use. For fishing, get an Effilé, for mountain climbing, get a Tradition, otherwise, simply pick the one you think looks best... Or get one of each -- they're affordable! For size, none are huge, and most all the models I carry will fit fine in a pocket or toolkit, so again, it comes down to personal preference. The smaller models can be a bit more comfortable in a pocket for everyday use, but for outdoors use fishing, a slightly larger can be more handy and rugged.

Great Gifts! A good quality and beautiful pocket knife is a friend for life. The most basic and oldest tool known to humans the world over, it gives your recipient a daily reminder of your thoughtfulness.

The blade folds into the handle and includes the simple and effective "Virobloc" Opinel-exclusive blade locking device, to lock the blade safely and securely in the open or closed postion.

  • Opinel Tradition Knife, Beech handle, Carbon Steel, 7cm (#6)
    • 17% off

    This is THE classic Opinel! "Tradition" style pocket knife with a beautiful light beechwood handle. Features a 7cm "Yatagan" classic shape blade and classic Opinel Tradition handle. Super sharp and strong carbon steel blade for easy maintenance of its razor sharp edge. The blade folds into the handle and includes the simple and effective "Virobloc" Opinel-exclusive blade locking device, to lock the blade safely and securely in the open or closed postion. NOTE: a carbon steel blade, while easy to keep super sharp, and very retro-cool, WILL rust and discolour with age and if kept wet or put into contact with any acidic items. It's popular with outdoors people or people specifically looking to try a carbon steel knife, but I don't recommend it for kitchen/food use (cutting something acidic will turn it -- and whatever it touches -- black right away!). As with all carbon steel knives, keep it as dry and clean as possible, but accept the fact that it will NOT stay shiny -- it's part of the charm of a well-loved and "seasoned" blade (like a well-seasoned carbon steel wok).

    • New!

    I just LOVE spreading knives. They're handy, they look cool, they're unique, and they make great gifts. Perfect for jam, soft cheese, soft butter, margarine, etc... great for breakfast, brunch, buffet, or any service at the table or kitchen. Features a stainless steel 6.5cm thin spatula style blade.

    -------------

    A spatula blade generously sized for quick spreading.

    To spread butter, jam, chocolate, but also rillettes, liverwurst, tapenade and others guilty pleasures. Its generous spatula blade allows a quick and precis spreading.

    Blade length: 6 cm

    Stainless steel: Stainless steel is an alloy steel. The addition of chromium increases its resistance to corrosion. Stainless steel does not require any special maintenance.

    Handle: Beech is the most commonly used wood for the manufacture of Opinel handles. From France, our beech is hard, durable and easy to work. With a homogeneous appearance, its light color varies from yellow to pink. It is characterized by the presence of numerous small dark dashes.
