Opinel is most famous for inventing the pocket knife, but the family-run business, which has operated in the French Alps region since 1890, has also made culinary knives beloved across the globe. This mushroom knife has considered every detail—it features a brush made from boar bristles for removing soil, as well as a curved 8 cm blade which enables easy stem cutting, with the serrated back of the blade being extremely practical for scraping and cleaning. The folding shape makes it easy to transport.
Why we love it
'An ideal gift for a forager or mushroom lover.'
About The Brand
Joseph Opinel began producing knives in a French town called Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne in 1890. By the early 20th century, Opinel had already become a household name—one that is synonymous with exceptionally practical knives for everyday and specialist kitchen use. Today the company is run by Joseph Opinel’s great grandsons, and all their products are still made in France. Featuring natural wooden handles, precision-shaped blades, and signature safety locking mechanisms, these knives are crafted for a lifetime of daily use.Shop Opinel
