I want to but I can’t really say that my husband and I always loved to cook but we are definitely discovering big passion in cooking and food in general now. We even decided to have a little garden this year, which was something we saw as a big burden just couple of years ago.
Naturally we want the kids to be a part of it and Tila likes to help prepare food but the knife I bought for her is taking all the fun out of cutting for her. I didn’t want to buy her one that would be too sharp but the one she has now is even more dangerous for cuts than a sharper one.
But recently I discovered the perfect solution – this beautiful knife from Opinel designed especially for kids. It has a special educational ring between the blade and handle in order to prevent the little hand from slipping onto the blade while teaching proper technique. And a special finger guard that comes with the set helps position fingers from the other hand into a claw grip used by professional cooks in order to keep them away from the blade. To ensure extra safety the tip of the knife is round.
