    Hello everyone!
    I just wanted to share this with you, because my daughter has been working very hard the past few months learning proper cutting techniques and learning to safely handle kitchen knives. She's six, and has been asking me to make her a knife, which I only agreed to do when I felt she was able to cut properly without taking off fingers.

    She's getting close, and so I have to uphold my end of the bargain. Although she asked for rainbows and all sorts of silly things, this is the knife that I've put together for her. Thought you all might be interested!

    There's also a video of my process (minus the creation of the blade itself), but be warned that it is pretty artsy....



    On to some photos!

    Thank you so much! I think that I enjoyed making it more than I've enjoyed making any other knife, which is saying a lot.

    That is a very nice build. I am sure she will love the mermaid.
