i own a wusthoff 5-in. classic hollow santoku that is very manageable. that's me, though..... in a tool buying endeavour i'd take the kiddo along so that he could test if the items works well for him. they'll let him test them for balance, fit, that sort of deal.

If you bring a 5-6 yo kid to store to buy a knife, they will luck you up and send the kid to foster care, are you kidding me...

I have almost the exact same knife, bought in Germany a few years ago, except mine in 17cm. This is a lighter-weight knife than my other knives and seems to be a good weight for smaller hands. This is the knife dd likes to cut with the most. Either that or a paring knife for working with things like smaller fruit.
