Overview

The Mora kid’s knife, formally called the Woodcarving Jr, is a small, rugged little knife made to the same quality standards (and incredible value) as Mora’s other knives.

What makes this a relatively safe first knife for a kid?

  1. Small dimensions overall makes this knife easy to handle.
  2. Finger guard keeps fingers away from the blade.
  3. It’s a fixed blade so your child won’t be fiddling with moving parts or locking mechanisms.
  4. Carbon steel and beech handle lead to fun and easy lessons in tool care. Read: How to Sharpen Mora Knives and How to Care for Wooden Tool Handles

My Take

Both of my children–now 8 and 12–started off with this knife. My eldest likes to use a larger Mora now, but my youngest still uses his small Mora regularly.

It’s small, but quite sturdy and great for general outdoor use, not just wood carving.

The single bevel, Scandinavian grind is easy to sharpen; and the carbon steel blade and plain wood handle provide easy opportunities to practice basic tool care: both should be oiled regularly, especially the blade.
