In a small Savoie village in Maurienne in 1890, Joseph Opinel made the pocket knife that now bears his name. The Opinel company is located in the heart of the Alps and is still run by the descendants of Joseph Opinel. They have been making hand tools for over 130 years. This collection includes knives and pocket tools for DIY, sport, outdoors activities and gardening as well as kitchen knives and table knives. Arthur Beale stock a curated collection of Opinel knives, all tried and tested by us rigorously in our rope workshop.
