Opinel is a brand of Savoyard knives made in Chambéry. Opinel knives have been manufactured since 1890, selling products in more than 70 countries. Today, more than 300 million blades have been sold worldwide. In 1955, a safety ring was added on Opinel to lock in the open position, and then it was amended in 2000 to lock in the open position but also closed to avoid accidental opening.
