I recently bought my 9-year-olds this set from Opinel -- I would have gotten it for them when they were 7 or 8 had I known about it: http://www.opinel-usa.com/collections/opinel-kids-corner/products/opinel-le-petit-chef-set

These just came back in stock and we're ordering for my 3 year old. Plan to buy the Opiniel set when he's a little older.

We used the zyliss lettuce knife when my kids were small.
