My toddler has been taking an interest in cooking, and I wanted to buy him a knife that was completely safe for him to use so we could embrace his new found interest. Like any mother with a potentially sharp object, I tested it by running it across my fingers quite hard and it didn't even scratch! So I'm very happy with how safe it is, it is easy for my 3 year old to use, and he loves the design. Very happy I bought this!
This knife is useless for most cutting, it has no edge. I can't even cut through an un-peeled cucumber. I wanted my daughter to use this, but I'd rather let her use my sharp-edged knife than this one - she'll need to use so much force to get through anything, so I'm seriously worried about her fingers once she get through the peel.... (The serrated variety from the same company is decent, though.)
