Swann Morton Knife Providers Keeping Eye on News

The man behind the current Channel 4 programme ‘The Island’ recently caused controversy; when he suggested that children should be allowed to play with knives from a young age. The topic was picked up by the national press; with both The Telegraph and The Independent printing the story.

Bear Grylls attracts an awful lot of attention in the UK due to his position as Chief Scout of the Scouting Association. He also experienced unparalleled levels of success with his show Bear Grylls: Born Survivor; a ‘survival tip technique’ show which earned millions of adoring fans across the globe.

He is a champion of the outdoors; and is never too far from a story which covers encouraging kids to embrace the wild. His comments came as he told the Radio Times that parents should be teaching children “how to embrace and manage risk”.

Using Knives Safely

Grylls has received criticism in the media for his suggestions; after stating during an interview that encouraging children to play with knives could be ‘empowering’. He did state, however, that he felt that way because it’s important for a developing mind to learn to do something in the safest way, as reported in The Independent:

“Sometimes in life we get cut,” he said. “My six-year-old recently cut himself on a knife, and came in with blood pouring everywhere, but, you know what? He’s not cut himself again. He learned how to handle a knife.”

Critics have suggested that this is an idyllic view, and that an accident would never be too far away with children given responsibility of knives. Grylls though; did state in the same interview: “When I say to budding adventurers, ‘Listen – a blunt penknife is a dangerous knife. Make sure it’s really sharp’ – the kids’ faces light up. Like all kids, they want a mega-sharp penknife – great, but teach them to respect it and use it properly,” countering the argument that his thinking is purely reckless, and adding some logic to his quotes.
