Since 1890, in Savoie, at the heart of the French Alps, Opinel has been manufacturing tools and pocket knives for all those who enjoy the outdoors. Immersion activities in nature (bivouacs, adventure, survival experiences, hunting, fishing, etc.) require a thorough knowledge of the rhythm, dangers and potentials of the environment.
These activities also require robust, dependable and functional equipment. The No. 12 Explore knife concentrates all of these key qualities and capabilities and will become the must-have tool for any type of immersion activity.
