Chef Boyer: With a rich history of over 130 years, Opinel epitomises consistency. It's not just a pocket knife; it exudes fun, playfulness, innovation, and seamlessly complements modern lifestyles, whether in nature, home kitchens, or commercial settings.

Chef Boyer: Outside the kitchen, my go-to Opinel would be the N°8 carbon with a sheath. I have a cool green one that accompanies me daily. In the kitchen, for eating, I adore the Limited edition N°8 with black palm wood, reminiscent of my love for palm trees from my time near Palm Springs, even going as far as having a Palm tattooed on me.
