The SCHNITZEL UNU
The SCHNITZEL is a children’s woodcarving knife / outdoor knife that is up to the job and just as good as its larger counterparts for adults! It is called “UNU”.
The non-slip, ergonomically contoured G-10 handle scales make for an extremely sturdy knife that is incredibly easy and, above all, safe for children (aged approx. 4-10 years) to hold. It is available in three different eye-catching and modern grip colours – green, blue or orange – that make it easier to find if dropped outdoors.
The SCHNITZEL has a full tang construction made of one continuous piece of stainless steel with stonewashed finish. It shows excellent edge-holding properties and is easy to re-sharpen. In order to improve safety during use, the tip of the blade is rounded to make it suitable for children. However, the edge of the blade is sharp – and so should it be: Carving with a sharpened blade minimises the risk of injury as you have to exert less pressure on the knife.
The weight and size of the SCHNITZEL children’s whittling knife have been optimised so that it is equally comfortable to use for younger and older children.
As an added bonus to these features, the knife comes complete with a heavy-duty, virtually indestructible sheath made from Kydex material. It has a removable belt loop, fits around the knife like a glove, thus ensuring safe carry, and is impervious to water, mud and cold temperatures. A Paracord lanyard in the same colour as the grip completes the kit.
