Safety Disclaimer: We do not recommend a specific age for when your child is ready to use a knife. By purchasing a knife from us, you assume all responsibility for the risks associated with knife use. We strongly recommend adult supervision and adherence to specified safety practices.  

At camp: Only campers age 8 and up may use knives, only when they have demonstrated the ability to follow safety guidelines and only with close supervision. If you would like to discuss whether or not your camper has demonstrated safe knife use at camp please ask to speak with a Camp Director. Knives will only be sold to and received by adults. The knives we sell are the only knives pre-approved for use at camp. Campers with their own knives must turn them into staff members upon arrival at camp. With approval by a Camp Director, campers will be given their personal knife for use when supervision is available.

An impact-resistant handle with a larger shape fits comfortably in the hand. A finger guard on the handle provides additional safety. Included with the knife is a hard plastic Combi-Sheath, which provides a quick-connect feature for attaching a second knife and sheath.
