It is a coming of age rite of passage in our house. on their 8th birthday, they get to choose (within reason), their swiss army knife.
There are rules - the kids have to buy heir own. Poor behaviour over rides the right to a knife. Stupidity with the knife results in confiscation.
This knife was for our daughter, and she loves it. It is a great vehicle for teaching responsibility.
quality wise, it's a victorinox. I have owned a few over the years, and it takes serious abuse to hurt them. (Posted on Apr 21, 2016)
