Why we love it: Have you ever heard a knife described as sweet before? Well, we like to say this is a sweet little knife. It’s slightly smaller than our other knife, the Opinel, which makes it ideal for smaller children with supervision. Made by the company Morakniv, it’s Swedish, well-built, and has a fixed blade, which means it won’t break (especially important when kids are involved!). And the best part is that it has a safe rounded tip and a hand guard so little fingers don’t slide over the blade.
How we use it: This is an ideal introductory knife to teach little ones knife safety and skills. Check out our video tutorials on knife safety, using a knife to create a magic wand, and whittling a fuzzy stick for some ideas for basic projects that are sure to engage and teach you and the kid in your life.
