Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 2 Children's cutlery sets (Kitchen & Home)
This is a lovely set of cutlery for the toddler who is ready to move on from baby cutlery. It's a good weight without being too heavy, well balanced for use and generally good quality. The appearance is just like our regular cutlery, great for the toddler who wishes to be just like the adults. The serrated knife, while not being dangerous for the occasional popping in the mouth when the child forgets not to, is good for practising cutting skills, where baby cutlery knives are only good for pushing onto the fork.
I placed the above review over a year ago. I'm now editing to add that the cutlery is lasting really well, no deterioration from lots of dishwashing. I recommend this to a lot of my friends with similar age children. I think I shall buy some more for when my younger child is also up to using "big children's" cutlery, so that we don't run out on busy days. My brother came to visit and thought that the cutlery was for adults to use - as butter knives, cake forks and pudding spoons! He was very impressed that it was for children, plus we'll keep using them for just those tasks as well as for in (adult) lunchboxes when the children outgrow them.

What size are the knife and fork in legth? My mother has to use baby cutlery becasue of arthritis and needs the smallest size but this is usually withplastic handles and characters - not great for a 72 year old out for dinner in a nice restaurant! Thanks.

Knife: total length 16.5cm of which the handle is about 8cm, transition to blade is about 8mm and the rest is the blade.
Fork: total length is 15.5cm of which the handle is about 9.5cm.
(For completeness, though you didn't ask but another might like to know) Spoon: total length 16cm of which the handle is 10cm.
I wear age 8 gloves, hand length from heel to end of middle finger is 15.5cm and I find them a little small, but fine to use - I put them in my own lunchboxes, but I wouldn't want to use them every meal.
The knife will certainly be better than "character" knives for your mother to use for cutting up her food as it's serrated nearly as well as proper adult knives. If the lighter weight of the smaller cutlery is the reason for using it, then these ARE adult cutlery weight. Plastic ones also have chunkier handles, I find.
