Opinel Les Forgés 1890 Bread Knife

Well-balanced, robust and lightweight with an ergonomic design that pays homage to the traditional pocket knife, the Opinel Les Forgés 1890 Bread Knife is a kitchen essential. Masterful design combined with the Opinel ancestral tradition of fine craftsmanship will impress even the most discerning kitchen connoisseurs.

The full-tang razor-sharp, serrated blade will glide through crusty loaves with ease. Its gentle curved shape makes for a comfortable cutting action and will make light work of not just your Sunday sourdough but tough watermelon rind and pineapple too. The 21cm stainless steel blade is extremely resilient to rust, and the unfinished beechwood handle is stabilized to improve water resistance and provides outstanding grip and comfort.

Comes beautifully presented in a premium gift box for effortless gifting.
