the Escapade collection

AZIMUT

Azimut revisits the graphic potential of mountain mapping.

The curves of level that adorn its handle and its black blade describe the relief of the Aiguilles d'Arves located in Savoie, in the massif of the Maurienne, cradle of the Opinel.

The model of the knife is that of the essential pocket knife N°08, with a blade and a stainless steel ferrule equipped with a black coating to give it a modern image.

We also find engraved on the blade some elements of the cartography, which allow to create a reminder of the elements of the handle. The latter is made of charming wood, a very light wood that has allowed to wrap it with the printing of the cartography on the entire surface of the handle.

Inspiration from the Artist - "Les Aiguilles de Djé"

A great lover of nature, Jérémy’s illustrations are inspired by the little things of outdoor life, its landscapes, fauna and flora.

A legacy he shares through meticulous tattoos made to other enthusiasts who cross his path.

For this new limited edition collection, Opinel wanted to work with Jérémy on the theme of the Escapade, as a desire to go on an adventure, to rave about the beauty of nature…

The "Azimut" model revisits mountain cartography, picking up on the contours of the Aiguilles d'Arves, the birthplace of Opinel.

This limited edition pocket knife was created by "Les Aiguilles de Djé", the tattoo artist whose signature features on the entire Escapade collection.

 The handle of the knife features the topographical profile and contour lines of the Aiguilles d'Arves, the mountain range that looms above the village from which the Opinel knife originated.

The decorative work covers the entire silhouette of the knife and adds a sophisticated finish, making splendid use of the light colour of the handle.

 The stainless steel blade is treated with a black coating and is itself also decorated with graphic elements that match those found on the handle.
The black colour of the blade and safety ring reinforce the contrasting finish of this pocket knife, which is a genuine feast for the eyes.

There are only 7,600 copies of this pocket knife in the world, making it an exceptional piece. It comes in a box with instructions. The blade is numbered.
