If you’re looking for a cool way to help your child get involved in kitchen prep, then this wooden knife is an awesome gadget to have on hand. This safe wooden “knife” was designed especially for children, allowing them to help cut and chop tender vegetables and fruit — but it is very safe for little fingers! Made with reclaimed maple wood or yellow birch and a water-repellent ecological linseed oil base finish certified for food use and for toys, each knife is handmade and one-of-a-kind. To prolong the life of your knife, you can occasionally coat it with a thin layer of edible veggie-based oil. The perfect gift for young aspiring chefs over the age of three years, although, if a parent is close by, even the tiniest tots may safely use this tool.
