Teaching my Son Knife Safety

After the accident that I had when I was a child with my Swiss Army knife that resulted in a nasty scar on my left hand, I decided that I would teach my son proper knife safety before letting him have a pocket knife of his own.  I didn’t want him to repeat the same mistake that I did, so I am making some time this weekend to go over the basics with him.

If he seems to have a firm grasp of what I will be teaching him, I will consider giving him is first pocket knife – if he doesn’t, I won’t rush things – his safety is my primary concern.
