Their masterful design by BIG-GAME studio in Switzerland, combined with Opinel’s 130 years of ancestral tradition of fine craftsmanship, will impress even the most discerning connoisseurs. Hand crafted with full tang blades, these knives are fully forged from a single stainless-steel rod. This skillful process means each handcrafted knife comes with noteworthy, remarkable strength, perfect balance and excellent cutting ability.
