The Wood Jewel "Kids First Knife" is intended as a starting knife for children or scouts. The blade is just over 3 1/4 inches and comes 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. If you like the idea of this but feel you would prefer a sharp tip, The WJ-PP is the way to go.
