When it comes to kitchen-savvy cutting tools, Opinel’s iconic knives are second to none. For many culinary artists, chefs, and aspiring aficionados, the brand’s items have become figurative (and literal) staples within the world of cooking, and now, the outfit is paying homage to its past with the Les Forges 1890 collection.

The Opinel Les Foges 1890 collection’s name is in direct correlation with the company’s date of conception, marking almost 130 years of cutting-edge prowess within the culinary world. To celebrate, the brand has released a number of traditional knives, including Chef, Carving, Paring, Santoku, Bread, Boning, and Fillet models — all of which have been fully-forged using strong X50CrMoV15 steel and feature a balanced, full-tang architecture. Regardless of your cooking style, you’ll find that there’s a knife for everybody in Opinel’s newest heritage collection. Head to the company’s website for more information. And while you’re there, pick up a new kitchen-worthy cutting companion for $89+.
