Heritage & Breed: Opinel Slices Into The US Hospitality Market

Distinctive cutlery has been Opinel’s trademark for over a century, and they continually reinvigorate their collections with new products and finishes. We’re thrilled to be named their exclusive hospitality distributor.

In 1890, Joseph Opinel invented a small folding knife, and began his family-owned company that has since grown to include traditional folding knives and full-tang chef knives. The brand has become one of the cornerstones of stylish cutlery. Its French heritage and diverse design portfolio present an alternative steak knife brand that’s truly against the grain.

A rainbow of eye-catching steak knives featured in the increasingly popular Bon Appetit collection are available for immediate delivery.

The newest addition to their lineup is a specialized brunch knife, a uniquely casual cutlery accessory, perfect for anything from slicing to schmearing.

From the classics to the newcomers, these pieces are built to last and honor Opinel’s century-plus history. All Opinel’s knives are still made in the Savoie region in the heart of the French Alps. High-carbon stainless steel is used for ultimate sharpness.

Handles are available in hornbeam wood, sourced from sustainably managed French forests, as well as a variety of exotic woods from around the world.

For tough-as-nails durability, try polyoxymethylene (POM) handles, which are polished manually for a soft touch. Whether in wood or POM, this design icon guarantees smooth cutting in colors and finishes to stylishly accentuate any tabletop.

Opinel’s diverse range of cutlery has an item (and price point) for any tabletop application, whether you’re serving bagels and lox or chateaubriand.
