Went with Kershaw, because of the multiple recommendations and my personal experience. The Chive was too dangerous because of liner lock so we went with a basic lockback:
short blade, fits in his hand just right, easy to open/close, and it's shiny, so hopefully he won't lose it. Plus it was only $22 at the local shop. If I remember I'll do a proper review this summer once we've put it to the test.
He'll be ready for a Kukri before you know it!
Is that what is it called?
