He doesn't have full access of course. It's his third birthday and since he could walk and talk " I can see your knife?" Has been heard a thousand times. A natural born knife nut!

Thanks for sharing - Paul.

It´s great to see the joy in his eyes :)

The knife will always have a special place in his life, for sure.

I can almost remember being that age and my grandpa giving me my first knife. That is a priceless experience that he will never forget.

Are his little fingernails strong enough to open that sucker?

I bought both my sons a GEC made Scharade #73. My 7 year old (almost 8) cannot come close to opening it. His little nails are just way too soft! The other son was 2 at the time, so he does not get his till he is older.

I had to buy a Opinel for the older boy. That, he can open no problem!

Just barely, he has been opening my knives for about 3 months and has been playing guitar since he was two so his hands and nails are probably a lot stronger than most boys his age. His older brother is 13 and can't open it.

Very cool Paul, I still remember getting my first knife on my sixth birthday, Imperial Kamp-king, I still have it, I don't think I've skipped a day without a knife since. I think my daughter already picked out her first knife...........

Very cool. My daughter turned three a couple of months ago and she isn't near strong enough to open her first knife (a 2010 BFC knife with stout springs). I should just go ahead and buy her a Mora, Opinel, or Victorinox Edelweiss to start her off with.

Wow, great pics Paul, thanks a lot for sharing them with us, what a lucky little boy (my first was a Richards Little Chief).

You too Pete, is that a Queen your daughter has there (the knife not the penny)? :)
