Morakniv®, creator of quality Swedish knives since 1891, is proud to offer a new option designed to safely inspire the next generation of carvers and crafters. The Morakniv Rookie is the perfect choice for children learning to use a knife for the first time. With thoughtful features aimed at safe handling, the Rookie allows young users to gain confidence and learn responsibility while handling a knife.

The Rookie features a 2.8” stainless steel blade with a completely rounded safety tip and a finger guard to prevent slipping onto the cutting edge. The small, barrel-shaped handle is designed for small hands, while the natural birch wood provides a nice grip. At 1.8 ounces, the Rookie is light enough for young users to safely handle and manipulate. The Rookie comes with a polymer sheath to keep both the blade and the user safe when it’s not being used. MSRP: $19.99

“We see a growing trend, all over the world, to ‘get back to roots,’ to do something genuine and physical with your own hands and simple tools,” says Björn Åkerblom, Morakniv’s global sales and marketing director. “Woodcarving is a very relaxing and fun activity that can be done almost anywhere without Wi-Fi, computers or even electricity, while bringing generations together. Since children will most likely be taught by a parent or grandparent, they will get a good understanding and a healthy relationship with knives, and learn early on to see them as tools rather than potential weapons.”

The Morakniv Rookie is available now. For more information, visit moraknivusa.com or please contact Suzanne@darbycommunications.com.
