Just in: A Girl's First Blade(s) - 1
Regular readers will recall that I wondered several weeks ago what sort of knife to get my daughter for her 10-year birthday.
It's a rite of passage in my family that a pocketknife is gifted on the 10th birthday. I had no trouble finding knives for my twin boys three years ago, but girls are simply different, and I asked your opinion on the sort of blades to give.
You delivered plenty of opinions, and I considered them all. But here are the two knives that Iris now carries in her pockets:
Spiderco Delica 4
Bear & Sons Abalone Folder
It's a sized-right 440 blade with electric blue handles inlaid with highly polished abalone.
So, it turns out that the perfect blade for a 10-year-old girl is actually two blades. Happy birthday, Iris.
