Opinel Readies Parallele Knife Block Set

Opinel is preparing to debut Parallele, the company’s first-ever knife block set, on October 1.

The new set includes five knives and a wood knife block. Each set comes with an 8-inch chef, Santoku, carving and paring knife, and either a bread or boning knife.

Each knife is made of stainless steel and has sustainably harvested beech wood handles. The matching knife block has four slots for bigger knives and a single slot for smaller kitchen knives. It also features silicone pads on the bottom to keep the block in place.

The Parallele knife block set has a suggested retail price of $199.
