The Wusthof 8 inch Mezzaluna (or mincing knife) is a must-have for Italian cooking essentials. Named for it’s half-moon shape, the mezzaluna is a blade that is meant to be rocked back and forth to chop herbs or vegetables. When utilizing the mezzaluna it will make chopping a breeze and also a joy. While the mezzluna does a similar job to a cook’s knife with herbs, it maintains more safety than a straight blade and more security since you do not need to push the herbs forward as with a straight-edge knife.
This Wusthof blade is perfect for mincing, dicing, and chopping spices, herbs, and veggies, such as celery and onions. Simply place the edge of the blade on the cutting board and rock the mezzaluna back and forth against your ingredients to quickly and easily chop, dice, or mince. Bearing the Wusthof name, the mezzaluna is forged from one piece of high-carbon stainless steel and is dishwasher safe. The ergonomic design of the handle allows for comfortable use and superior control.
The Wusthof 8” mezzaluna mincing knife guarantees the highest quality cuts and lasting sharpness to the blade. This essential kitchen accessory comes with a lifetime warranty.
