The "Scout Knife" is intended as a starting knife for children or scouts. The blade is just over 3 1/4 inches and comes with a Sharp tip verses the '"Kids first knife" with a blunt tip. The pronounced finger guard will greatly reduce the chances of their finger sliding up on the blade. The sheath is patterned with a reindeer and has a keeper strap with a button to retain the knife. The strap is above the finger guard so even if it comes unfastened, it tends to retain the knife for safety.
