Now the French company brings its outdoor know-how to a new folding knife designed for expeditions, bushwhacking, camping, and hunting. The No. 12 Explore includes a built-in fire starter and safety whistle, as well as a durable polyamide handle designed to withstand shock, extreme temperatures, and moisture.

Joseph Opinel designed his first pocket knife in 1890, creating a tool that is as robust and functional as it is simple and beautiful. From his workshop at the foot of the French Alps, Opinel forged a cult classic.
