Opinel celebrate 125th anniversary

During this years Outdoor show we were treated to a lovely French beer and a tour of the Opinel stand. The reason for the beer was to celebrate the fact that they have been making knives for an impressive 125 years. opinel

To mark the anniversary the brand called upon its’ many fans to submit designs for a special limited edition version of  their popular No.8 knife. These designs were then whittled down to 12 and were posted on the brands Facebook page where a public vote was held.


The contest was won by Mathieu Gazaix with his beautiful nature inspired design. Opinel are only making 12500 versions of this knife and they will be on sale in October 2015.
