The My First Opinel with Sheath is the perfect knife to teach kids how to whittle, cut, prune or carve wood. The sheath is made from recycled material and will stand the test of time. The knife has a stainless steel blade making it easy to maintain and take care of. The folding knife also features our patented Virobloc locking mechanism which keeps the blade safely closed for transport or securely open while in use. We suggest adult supervision when teaching kids to use the knife.
