Opinel Ultimate French Cheese Knife Set
+ $ shipping surcharge
A cheese plate essential.
It’s only suiting that Opinel, the iconic French knife maker, would come up with the perfect little fork-and-knife set for the most French of foods: cheese and charcuterie. The knife features Opinel’s signature classic wooden handle, made from sustainably harvested beechwood, and a stainless steel blade that’s sharp, durable, and easy to maintain. Use the accompanying stainless steel fork to steady a big wedge while cutting into it, for serving, and as a holder for the knife when not in use.

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
