I cross blades, but with no adversary.

I am sharp, but I am still entrusted to children without thought.

I turn one into two, two into four. But never vice-versa.

Who am I?

  • $\begingroup$ Is it the addition? $\endgroup$ – Daedric Jan 22 '16 at 2:45
  • $\begingroup$ Another good idea, but I'm not thinking within the realm of mathematics. I will add another line if I need to. $\endgroup$ – Quiquȅ Jan 22 '16 at 2:47
