Nomad knives kit

Nomad knives

Self-stated as ‘the right cooking tools for adventurous meals’, Opinel’s new Nomad Cooking Kit is a practical piece of gear tailored to the culinary-minded rural trekker. Saving on space without forgoing functionality, the kit is constituted of a chopping board, dishcloth-cum-carry pouch and a trio of beechwood-handled knives. Each knife bears its own function, catered to cutting and peeling ingredients of different shapes and sizes. Additionally, Opinel has concealed a corkscrew within its 10cm blade, relieving you of one less thing to carry. Easy to wash and dry, the Nomad kit will keep you fed, and keep you going.
