A trusted, durable French brand since 1890, Opinel makes sturdy, multipurpose knives of the highest quality materials. My first pocket knife folds so you don’t need to keep track of a sheath, and features a rounded end blade for added safety.
Why we love it: We love the added safety of the big, rounded tip on this folding knife. It’s designed to comfortably fit kid’s hands and is perfect for working on simple wood projects like spatulas, digging sticks or fuzz sticks for firestarters.
How we use it: The applications for My First Pocket Knife are truly endless. It easily packs up so is a great knife for on the go picnics or off-the-cuff wood projects. Kids can practice knife safety with basic carving and peeling the bark off sticks - turn any stick into a magic wand or a skewer for roasting food over a fire. This knife is ideal for kids age 12 and older.
