Opinel Kitchen Knives (Set of 3)
+ $ shipping surcharge
3 knives, 1 better cook.
When push comes to shove, many professional and home cooks alike will tell you the same thing: You can do pretty much everything you need in the kitchen using just three knives. The knifemakers at Opinel agree, and have dreamt up the three-knife starter set of every new cook’s dreams. The set comes with three stainless steel knives with cheerful beechwood handles: a chef’s knife for everyday chopping/dicing/slicing, a paring knife for more delicate knifework (like hulling strawberries), and a carving knife for slicing up big hunks o’ meat.

Meet the Maker
Joseph Opinel, a third-generation metalworker, designed his first pocket knife in 1890. Over 120 years later, its design is still considered one of the most important in history. In 1985, the Victoria and Albert Museum named the Opinel knife one of the 100 best designed objects in the world. Like a great family recipe, Opinel’s knives are the sort that get passed on and shared.View Full Profile
