My daughter LOVES to help in the kitchen and she is always wanting to help me chop onions and bell peppers, ect. I have let her use butter knives in the past until I found this knife for kids. It is from Pampered Chef and it is only $4.00! It is similar to a pumpkin carving knife. A safe, stainless steel cutter with a rounded point, just sharp enough for kids to cut apples, cheese, pancakes and more.
