"I don't think I could operate without a mezzaluna - that two handed curved blade of a knife - so-called because it means 'half moon' in Italian. Most people erroneously believe that you need to be pro-standard dexterous to use such a lethal-looking implement, but the opposite is the case: because both hands are off the chopping surface, gripping the handles, it is actually impossible for even the terminally clumsy to cut themselves. This mezzaluna matches form for function: it has an almost classically beautiful shape, and because it is made entirely out of stainless steel, can go in the dishwasher."

A stainless steel mezzaluna, for chopping herbs, chocolate and much more!
