Well, now that I have kiddos and I know how they are...my 4 year old will not get one till 8.
Yeah, don't get them one if they're constantly putting things in their mouths. I think at some point, you just have to take the chance. Once they cut themselves, they'll be more careful.
I remember buying one myself when I was 9. However, my oldest son is 8 and its going to be a few years before that little ADHD brat gets one. :slap:
dont get him 1 till he proves responsable and your missis agrees because i know having knifes isnt worth it if your mom dosent stop complainign
ADHD is exactly the reason why my 16 year old brother isn't responsible enough to handle the responsability of having any multitool or knife.
Don't worry mate, you're not alone, at least not completely. I handled a knockoff SAK when I was about 10, which turned me off pocket knives immediately. Parents weren't at all interested in giving me a knife, and it was only until last year when I was 19 that I was sucked into CPF, which went to EDCF, and subsequently Bladeforums. Bought a SAK Farmer shortly after joining the forums.
You know, I'm 34 and I managed to gouge my index finger with a stiletto Cold Steel triple action folder. I
'm blaming my 4 year old since her running into the street after a butterfly prompted me to divert my attention from a piece of staff work that I was trying to finish...with the wrong tool... :brickwall:
Does Tonka make knives?
Third grade - so around age 8. And I have carried a knife of some sort almost every day since then including to school, which is a huge no-no in US society today.
Agree about the comments regarding maturity of the child.
Me too. My dad gave me an old Buck that he had.
I once took a shop class and we were supposed to bring an Old-Timer-style pocket-knife to school. Now that same school requires no more than three inches of slack in your pant leg at the knee and mesh or other see-thru backpacks...
I never intentionally carried a knife to any school that prohibited it - the key word being intentionally.
I was very young when I got my first knife, which was a Swiss Army Knife (I don't remember what age) I did not use it a lot but took it to campouts.
I believe i was about 10 my dad went to conventions and they gave out knives, among other things, (pre 9/11) I remember getting my hands on a 3 inch all metal lock back knife with some medical company's name on it, that i carried everywhere.........till i lost it in a trade with a friend over something stupid O well
I can remember "borrowing" one of dad's knives (an old timer, stockman) when i was around 10-12, he found out and traded it for a different knife (which i still have somewhere - he also still has the old timer)
my grandparents gave me a 111mm sak when i was around 12-13, for christmas, but it was stolen when i was around 20.
my brother was given a sak around the same time, so he would have been around 10-11, he still has his (although it has seen barely any use in that time)
Victorinox sells a knife called "My first Victorinox" or perhaps "my first swiss army knife"
It is intended to be a kid friendly 1st pocket knife. I saw one on Amazon recently.
My dad gave me my first SAK at 6. It was a classic, and the very first cut was my left index finger. I then learned how to test sharpness and never repeated the accident.
I got my first Vic, a SwissChamp, when I was 5 for christmas!
