The Opinel No.8 knife is one of the most iconic knives ever created, so it should come as no surprise that their collaboration with L.L.Bean is equally iconic. The Opinel No.8 L.L.Bean Moosehead Knife takes the popular size, shape, functionality and heritage of the classic and combines it with a handle made from maple reclaimed from the bottom of Maine’s Moosehead Lake that’s over a century old. The knife is made in France by Opinel the same way they’ve been doing it since the late 1800s and includes a 12c27 Sandvik stainless-steel blade, Virobloc safety ring (to keep the blade secure when it’s not in use) and that gorgeous salvaged wood handle. In other words, this knife combines everything that made the original an icon and adds some more character with the L.L.Bean treatment from the reclaimed wood handle.

The coat rack is a necessary part of any entryway, but the functionality can get bogged down in all the coats, hats, scarves and bags that inevitably get stacked on each of the rungs or hooks. You won’t have that problem with The Switchboard coat rack. The 30″ long triangular rack includes 25 triangular wood hooks that rest against the wall until you fold them down to hold each of your daily items you don’t need for the moment. Made from beech wood, Switchboard is as stylish as it is functional.
