Here is a great way to teach kids about knife safety and the mechanics of how a folding knife works. This real working model of a lock-back knife enables young outdoor enthusiasts to build their very own folding knife. The smooth rounded plastic edges make it safe for kids ages 7 and up with adult supervision. Just like the original Nathan's Knife Kit, this kit is a great way for adults to teach youngsters about the function and safe handling of a folding knife while imparting the safety concerns of a real knife. Kids love building and taking apart Trigger Knife Kits over and over. The fun gets even bigger with 13 mix and match colors that allow kids to customize their very first knife in their favorite color combinations.
Specifications: Blade: 3.2” (80 mm)
Edges: Rounded for safety
Closed Length: 4.2” (106 mm)
Open Length: 7.3” (185 mm)
Weight: 0.8 oz (22 g) For ages seven and up.

I ordered 16 of these to use with my Cub Scout den for the education of knife safety. The boys loved how they had to construct the knives. Super easy and the idea of mixing colors was great. Couldn't be happier with the great customer service and the speedy delivery. Definitely going to order these again for the next years scouts. The boys were able to carve their soap with these without the worry of getting hurt. Would highly recommend for any leader looking for a way to teach their scouts about knife safety.

I bought several of these kits for my son (and let's be honest, myself also). They were easy to put together and seeing the inner workings was very neat! I bought 4 kits and walked my 5yr old through the assembly ~ having him do a little more with each one. He was able to assemble the 4th one without any help from me, except to press in a pin or two that was "stiff". I have been teaching him knife safety with them, and although he still treats them as toys, he is also beginning to handle them properly and avoid the "blade", etc. Very cool product. I'm thinking about proposing it for his cub scouts as a group project. I sharpened the edge of the blade so that he could cut string cheese and the like. I would love to see this product in a drop point style blade rather than the blade shape that it comes with. I don't find this shape blade to be conducive to learning about blade control, though I suppose that they were never intended to actually be used to cut anything. Good quality and great "cool" factor. Oh.. And they also have a very satisfying "click" when locking open and good "snap" when closing. My only concern is whether the plastic spring holds up to abuse that kids are sure to put them through. I think that it will be fine.
