Le Petit Chef collection is ideal for teaching children how to cook safely. Featured by Americas Test Kitchen as the best chef knife set for small children, this set includes a finger guard and a kitchen knife with a rounded tip & educational ring to help position the fingers and prevent the hand from slipping onto the blade. Both the knife and the peeler have stainless steel blades, requiring no maintenance at all. Please note that this knife is sharp and young users should be supervised at all time. Top Chef Junior season one finalist Rahanna Bisseret Martinez recommends the Le Petit Chef knife from French company Opinel. "There's a red hole in the knife handle where you put your fingers in," Martinez says, "so you learn the technique of holding the knife."
