Opinel Le Petit Chef Knife Set
+ $ shipping surcharge
Real kitchen tools, just for kids.
Your kids have mastered stirring the batter—they’re ready for a real set of kid-sized knives to help out in the kitchen. Your little chef will get a 4” kitchen knife, a finger guard, and a peeler. The deep heel of the kitchen knife provides ample knuckle clearance to prevent nicks and cuts; its smart finger ring positions the index finger and keeps it from wandering down the blade. The peeler also has a finger ring that helps your little ones smoothly pull across the surface of a vegetable or fruit. The finger guard holds food securely while they cut, protects their knuckles, and teaches them the proper hand position that chefs use!
These are real, sharp knives! All your little chefs should be supervised at all times. Designed for children ages 5 to 12 years old.

Meet the Maker
Joseph Opinel, a third-generation metalworker, designed his first pocket knife in 1890. Over 120 years later, its design is still considered one of the most important in history. In 1985, the Victoria and Albert Museum named the Opinel knife one of the 100 best designed objects in the world. Like a great family recipe, Opinel’s knives are the sort that get passed on and shared.View Full Profile
