Joseph Opinel began his knifemaking career in 1890. The shepherds, farmers, fishermen, and artisans of the Savoie region of the French Alps were the first to put Joseph's knives to the test. As time passed, the company grew--as did the popularity of the knives throughout Europe, and eventually the world. The Opinel brand mark depicts the hand of St. John the Baptist and the crown of the former Savoie Dukedom. Only the genuine article will bear this mark, guaranteeing each knife's quality and authenticity. Each Opinel knife is further distinguished by a stainless steel, signature locking ring which holds the blade in place with a twist.
