Opinel Les Forgés 1890 Chef’s Knife

(1 review)
The Les Forgés 1890 collection from Opinel embodies French cutlery excellence. High-quality pieces which draw on the brand's heritage of superior manufacturing know-how. 100% made in France, their ergonomic design pays homage to the traditional Opinel pocket knife, and their exceptional kitchen knives will impress even the most discerning.

Taking care of the lion's share, this Les Forgés 1890 chef’s knife is a must-have. From slicing onions to dicing chicken and chopping herbs. The 3mm thick blade gives rigidity and stability.

Fully-forged from a single piece of high-quality stainless steel, the robust, full-tang blade ensures a perfectly weighted and balanced performance, encouraging proper knife technique, giving an outstanding cut with a satisfying degree of precision. The sustainably sourced, unfinished beechwood handle is stabilized for water resistance and a pleasure to hold.

Ideal for professional and domestic kitchens alike, this premium chef's knife comes beautifully gift boxed and would make a wonderful housewarming gift.
