AMAZON GLOBAL SHIPPING TO MANILA
The item was available for advance order, and would only be in stock by 17 June. We ordered on June 12, 2020, it was shipped on 17 June and it arrived in my doorstep on 1 July, 2020. Shipping for all 4 sets was $34 inclusive of all fees for door to door. I usually use shippingcart.com, but we thought for air-freight this was pretty good already.
The items were wrapped well without excess paper or bubble wrap.
My son was really excited about it and wanted to immediately test it. I couldn’t seem to time my photo to catch the full smile, because he was just too excited to try it out already.
The knife and peeler are very sharp, but has guides for where they should put their fingers to keep safe and the finger guard really works. I still had to make sure he was very careful and we had a short session cutting tomatoes (this is hard so I don’t recommend this as the first thing you test on) and lettuce. Then peeling and cutting a small carrot.
I totally guided his hands to be able to do it successfully and I told him that we would try something else again tomorrow. I feel like shorter sessions make them excited and learn a little bit every day, especially because DiploBaby is only 4 years old.
I think it would be much easier for older kids. He was very pleased with what he did so he’s excited to practice a little every day.
You can see how an 8 year old reviewed it here:
To prevent a negative impact on the environment, 95% of the wood for handles comes from sustainably managed French forests. Most Opinel products are recyclable and made from recycled materials.
12C27 modified stainless steel is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition of chrome and requires no special maintenance. The plastic finger guard is dishwasher safe.
Please note that this knife is sharp and young users should be supervised at all time.
Made in France
In 1890, Joseph Opinel invented a small folding knife in the French Alps that would become a design icon throughout the world.
Opinel is about the simple life, being close to nature, and passing this on from one generation to the next.
