I've been wanting to test out some different kid-friendly kitchen knives with my kids. We have loved the Curious Chef knives for a long time now and I will still recommend them without a doubt. BUT my son was starting to want something sharper that didn't feel as much like a safety knife. And I felt like it was time to scour the market for some options. Both my kids and myself tested and compared FOUR different kids kitchen knives that were very highly rated on Amazon. Honestly, we liked all of them, but in different ways. Here is our super casual review of the following children's kitchen knives. We rated all four knives on price, blade sharpness, and overall effectiveness.

FOUR KIDS KNIVES
- Curious Chef Knife Set
- Kuhn Rikon Knives & Snippers
- Opinel Knife, Peeler & Child Safety Guard
- Beginner's Chef Knife by Made for Me
Since kids are the best critics on this topic, I listened to their feedback. My 3 yo daughter likes the Curious Chef Knives best. She felt like they fit her hand well. And she was nervous to use the others, given their sharper blades. My 5 yo son's winner is the Beginner's Chef Knife by Made for Me. Opinel's Knife came in at a very close 2nd, but he liked the serrated blade on the Made for Me knife more. So, basically my daughter's focus was safety and my son's focus was blade sharpness. Lol.
