The museum is wonderful. It really helped me understand the history of Opinel and how their knives are different from every other knife I've ever had. The staff is very friendly and all speak excellent English. I bought several knives and then went back later to exchange one of them and get them all engraved. They kindly helped and gave me a little history of the town while I waited and then put all the knives in individual gift bags for me. Very kind. Oh, and the knives are about 33% cheaper here than on Amazon, so definitely stop in if you have the chance.
Amazing place about the world famous opinel. What a knife. I heard that Japanese samouraï have invented their sword after a week in a Savoie’s ski resort. Not surprised at all about this legend.
