This set includes a Safe Wooden Knife for Kids that we affectionately call the “Chop Chop” and a convenient small Cutting Board that is not too heavy for kids. They are not only beautiful but very functional and easy to use. These child friendly tools will allow your child to help in the kitchen and learn about food preparation.
The safe wooden knife for kids is crafted with a perfectly parallel handle that allows for a safe and secure grip. The blade is sharp enough to chop fruits, vegetables, and other basic foods, but it will not cut skin or fingers. The rounded edges of the blade allow you to rock the knife a little without damaging the edges. Rocking a knife makes it easier to cut for people with a weak grasp.
The small maple wood cutting board is the perfect surface for your child to cut and will help to prolong the effectiveness of the Chop Chop. It is the right size and weight to allow your child to handle with ease. It is made as an elongated octagon designed to eliminate any sharp edges and has a diamond cut edge to give it the appearance of a gem.

ADVANTAGES OF THE CHOP CHOP
IT WORKS: It can cut anything from a banana to a carrot. This will include younger children at an earlier stage in contributing to food preparation.
IT IS SAFE: It will cut vegetables and fruit but won’t cut skin. The size and shape allows the child to use more force to cut without risk. It is made from 100% maple wood, which is a durable hardwood that is resistant to bacteria.
THE SHAPE AND HANDLE: It has a handle that permits a child to use it with one or two hands easily. It is easier to grip that those that do not have a handle. This allows for a firmer grip while cutting. Making the job of cutting easier.
PRESERVES FOOD: Maple Wood is neutral when in contact with food. It won’t react when cutting or chopping food, ensuring that the taste is as it should be and full of its intended nutrients.
IT IS MONTESSORI: A safe knife for kids that follows Montessori principles is one that is the right size for a child’s hands that is easy to grasp and is effective at cutting. The child will approach the activity enthusiastically. The involvement in the family’s food preparation will provide an opportunity for great social interaction. It may also make them want to try new foods. It can also help them improve their math and reading skills. The more the child learns the more they will develop confidence.
CARE AND USE
While the Maple Wood Knife and the Small Cutting Board are naturally very durable, you can also ensure their longevity by following a few simple maintenance steps.
The Chop Chop should be used on a wooden surface. This will prolong the effectiveness of the blade.
To clean the knife and the cutting board, use warm soapy water and dry with a dish towel immediately.
Never soak in water. They are not dishwasher safe.
Should you ever notice the wood starting to dry out, you can apply a coat of food safe mineral oil to bring back the wood’s softness.
If the blade of the knife begins to dull, lightly sand with 320 or 400 grit sandpaper to bring back the edge and touch up the newly sanded surface with a thin coat of food safe mineral oil.
We provide a 1 Year Warranty against cracks.
