My kid is only a year old, and not quite there yet, when it comes to knives.

However, 5 years from now he should be ready for his first knife.

So, how about a Busse for kids?

I would love to have his first knife be a Busse.
Problem is, no Busses are fit for kids, sizewise.

I am thinking; thin Elmax, proper guard and small handle.

Plus a bonus for Jerry would be, that he will probably loose it within a few days, at then have me buy a new one:cool:
 
They already have knives for kids lol
My 8 year old Son has a Carecoated Shark Face Fat Ash-1, and TGm on the way lol
 
My kids both have INFIdus. The AMS is a really good one too but I wanted to have something to grow into.
 
There is a Busse for kids. HACK Bear Cub.
David Brown owns 'em all though. ;)
 
You all day MBC like they are all just out there for reasonable dollars.
$250-$300 for a knife intended for a child, no way the secondary market is too high.

Now when Boss releases the BG MBC it'll all be good.
 
All good suggestions!

What is the thickness of the MBC and the Smokey?

As I recall the AC is rather thick.

The most important aspect, IMO, is thickness.
For a small kid to be able to work wood, the blade would have to be really thin.
Like ScrapMax thin.
 
I just got my kids one of the TGBG. I know its big but they like the blade style. Their first knife was a TOPS XcEST Alpha. Its a short stubby knife that has a nice little survival kit with it. Great for them to learn on.
 
My daughter had a pink handled Game Warden and a Polar Vortex AMS and they were both good. Still I kept thinking she's grow out of those so that's why I went INFIdu. The kids love em. My girl is 8 and my boy is 4. I was tempted to get them the recent UGs but the RMDs are great so I couldn't justify it.

I think the MBC is about .14-.15

The Lil' Smokey is about .095
I'm pretty sure every Busse Elmax blade has been .095 - steaks, scrapmax's, AD/GW, L.Smoke, etc


Not sure what the AC is. If you meant the AD, they come in all kinds of thicknesses.
 
Oh yes, Not AC, meant the AD :)

Well, if all Busse Elmax is .095 then a micro Elmax Team Gemini, choilless, would fit the bill;)

To me, a proper guard is pretty important on a kids knife.

Plus, it would look cool!
