My son, Nathan, came up with this idea for a pre-cut, easily assembled softwood knife kit. Naturally, we named it Nathan's Knife Kit in his honor. Not only is it an easy first woodworking project, but it is an excellent way to acquaint children, seven years of age and older, with the fundamentals of knife safety and responsibility. The kit is slightly oversized for easy assembly by young hands, and comes with complete instructions and knife safety education tips.
Depending on the skill of the child, the knife can be assembled from the bag by press fit, or it can be sanded, glued, sealed, stained, painted and decorated as desired. Nathan's Kit is an excellent first step in teaching kids about knife safety.

I have not yet put this together with my son, but the concept is great and the quality appears to be exemplary. My son is going to love this!

My four year old daughter has been begging for a knife since her brother got one for Christmas. I saw this knife kit on Cabela's, and decided to try it. What a great find! This kit is very well thought out, great quality pieces and easy to assemble. I will say lining up the four dowels at the same time was a little tricky, but all the "trickiness" equates to a knife that functions very, very well. Stays closed when its closed and locks open due to the locking spring. She loves her new knife, and I feel safe with her handling the knife because the "cutting" edge is not sharp at all and the opening and closing are smooth and function as they should. Also, she is learning how to be safe with knives without the dangers of a sharp blade. This is a great product that I have already recommended to friends and would recommend to anyone!
