For their newest limited edition artist series, Opinel has teamed up with Jérémy Groshens -Les Aiguilles de Dje, a 29-year-old French tattoo artist. Travelling between the mountains of his native Alsace and the Basque coast, Jérémy takes his art on the road, working from a 1972 Digue camper-turned-mobile workshop and tattoo parlor called the Outdoor Tattoo Truck.


Opinel decided to work with Jérémy on a specific theme: “Getaway,” the desire to take off on an adventure, and to delight in the beauty of nature. Three limited edition knives came out of this partnership.


“Elevation” is inspired by Japanese prints that pay homage to landscapes and sacred places.  A vision of those summits, frozen for just one moment in all their majesty, is recreated in a minimalist style with fluid lines, blocks of colour and subtle shading.



  • 8.5 cm Sandvik 12C27M stainless steel blade with black coating
  • French Hornbeam wood handle
  • Black coated Virobloc safety ring to lock the blade when open and closed



The Opinel folding knife is a popular everyday item whose aesthetics and functionality have won over generations of users. Invented in 1890 by Joseph Opinel, on the banks of a stream overlooked by the Savoie Mountains, its simplicity, robustness and functionality make it a noble tool. It has remained unchanged for over a century, with a design that is one of the most successful of all time. For this reason, Opinel was recognised by the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1985 as one of the best-designed items in the world alongside the Porsche 911 and the Rolex watch.   Opinel's extensive range goes beyond their traditional carbon steel folding knives to include a stainless steel range, gardening and outdoor cooking knives, multi-functional folders, a Junior range for children and a Luxury line-up with handles crafted from exotic woods and horn bone.   As well as the Outdoor folding knife range, Opinel also manufacture a large collection of Kitchen knives to aid in food preparation and Table knives for everyday dining. Like the Outdoor range, their Kitchen and Table knives are manufactured using high quality steels and handle materials to provide years of comfortable and reliable use.
