The three basic colours of red, green and blue are coming to the kitchen!

Les Essentiels du Cuisinier offers a set of four small knives that are essential for preparing good food every day:

- the paring knife: a versatile 10 cm blade

- the notched knife: a 10 cm micro-serrated blade

- the vegetable knife: a 7 cm bird's beak blade

- the peeler: a small 6 cm blade

All the blades are made of stainless steel, and the handles of hornbeam wood.


The Primo set, made in France, features the three fundamental colours for a sophisticated contrast.

Technical specifications

Hardness 55-57 HRC. European origin.
The stainless steel used in OPINEL blades is a grade optimized to guarantee both high corrosion resistance and high mechanical performance. 
The blade offers excellent sharpness and high resistance to abrasion (wear) which allows it to withstand regular contact with hard materials, such as ceramics, before requiring re-sharpening. Stainless steel has the advantage of requiring no special maintenance under ordinary conditions of use, unlike carbon steel. Nevertheless, it can meet its limits when it is put in prolonged contact with an aggressive environment (acid, salt water, detergent ...).

Coming from French forests, this white wood with few veins is ideal for applying color. The handle is varnished to be protected against moisture and dirt.
