The Opinel Paralelle Chef's Knife from Sous Chef

As a keen amateur chef the one thing I could not do without in my kitchen is my collection of good knives for prep. I even take a couple of decent knives when we go camping as I cannot bear working without quality knives.

When I helped my daughter choose kitchen essentials when she started uni I made sure we picked up a great little multi-purpose knife. I believe it's better to buy one or two good knives than an entire block of mediocre knives.

Over the years I have gradually improved the quality of the knives I buy and with the help of a good knife sharpener I have kept them in good condition.

Recently I was gifted a beautiful Opinel Paralelle beech handled chef's knife from Sous Chef. (AD)

This is a classic multi-purpose knife with a sharp curved blade perfect for slicing and dicing vegetables, finely chopping herbs and slicing meat and fish.

The 3mm thick blade is made from a stainless steel that’s highly resistant to corrosion. So, your Opinel chefs knife will stay in top condition for years to come. The handle is made from durable French beechwood.

The Opinel family started as blacksmiths in Savoie, France in 1800. Although famous for their folding penknives, their expertise in blade making naturally led to a future in kitchen knives. 

Using the same high quality materials and over 200-years of know-how, you can now enjoy a touch of Opinel excellence every time you cook. These knives are designed in Savoie, France and manufactured in Portugal.

It's a beautiful knife and lovely to use. It would make a lovely gift for the chef in your life or treat yourself in time for all that food prep during the festive season. You can buy the chef knife here (over 18's only) and look forward to using a quality knife which will make preparing meals like a pro easy.
