This is my bestest bushcrafting buddy. She's almost eleven years old and starting to ask about getting her own knife.
She's got a good handle on knife safety and she's already gotten her first cut (she's tough; she was more worried about me taking my knife back than she was about the cut) but she doesn't have full control yet. I got a Mora 612 to eventually give to her and she's having to put more effort into fighting the leverage the longer blade is creating. I'm guessing a 2" blade would suit her perfectly while she's learning.
Is there a Mora or comparable knife with a smaller blade for beginners? I'll get her a folding knife eventually but for right now I'd like to stay with a fixed blade.
