Forest School Knives

Forest School knives are generally made with stainless steel or carbon steel blades. Carbon steel is generally the preferred choice of knife steel as it is considered to be easier to sharpen, but it will rust much quicker than stainless steel which has higher chromium content. Stainless steel knives are slightly harder to sharpen, but their blades are easier to maintain in terms of keeping them clean and stain-free. You can learn more about these differences by visiting our helpful BLOG post which explains these differences in depth.

Forest School Knives and Ideal Blade Lengths

The blade length of forest school knives will vary, but commonly they will be between 7 an 9cm in length, although for knives being used by younger children we offer blades which are much shorter and some with round tips which means they're safer to use for those who are not yet confident in their whittling skills.

Which Forest School Knives Do We Recommend?

We usually recommend knives with 'fixed blades' also known as sheath knives as the blades are non-folding meaning they are easier to use and require far less attention than those with moving parts and lockable blades.
