Zyliss Plastic Lettuce Knife

A while back my daughter went to a birthday party at a kids cooking school and came home with one of these plastic knives.  They are intended for lettuce, which I don't quite get, but they are also pretty good at cutting most things (for a plastic knife).  If you have a kid who likes to "help" these knives are a pretty safe way for them to get used to handling a knife without severing any digits.  The Lettuce knife is about the same size as a small chef's knife and because it is serrated, it gets the kids in the habit of slicing with a back and forth motion rather than chopping.  Of course you can't mince anything with it, but for everything else it should be fine.
