We've done our best to capture our beautiful product colours accurately but they may vary depending on your screen settings.

Get your little one involved in the kitchen with our kid-safe wooden knife. It’s just the right size for little hands, with an easy to hold handle and a tapered blade.

Best used with softer foods such as such as bananas, mushrooms, peaches, avocado, apple, watermelon, pineapple, tomatoes, cheese, bread or anything pre boiled. This is essentially a blunt knife, so a lot of pressure would be required to chop through something like a carrot - make sure you’re setting your little one up for success when you’re choosing your foods!

The wooden knife is also ideal for messy play with textures like playdough or kinetic sand. It’s a much loved tool in our house!

Can I pop my Wooden Knife in the dishwasher?
No. It’s important that your knife isn’t submerged in water or exposed to the heat of a dishwasher.

How should I wash the Wooden knife?
Simply rinse with soap and water and remove any food with a scrubbing brush. Do not submerge your Wooden Knife or allow it to absorb lots of water.

What age is the Wooden Knife recommended for?
It depends on your child’s strength and gross motor development but if they can comfortably stand and balance without holding on to something, they can be offered a Wooden Knife to explore chopping with.

What can the Wooden Knife chop?
The Wooden Knife is a dull, child safe blade much like a butter knife. What can be cut depends on your child’s strength and force. A good rule of thumb to determine whether your child could cut something is “could I cut this with a butter knife?” If the answer is yes then let your child have a go!
