J.A. Henckels Mezzaluna Mincing KnifeFor mincing herbs and chopping nuts, the half moon mezzaluna knife has often been the traditional answer--this modern version redesigns the handle for one handed use and makes the twin blades removable for easier sharpening. All stainless steel construction means durability and easy cleanup.

Combined with a dished hardwood cutting board, mounted on nonskid rubber feet, this handy knife makes short work of herbs fresh from the garden. The result are cut herbs with texture and color you won't get by grinding in a blender.

Treat the wood block with mineral oil before use--clean up is simple, just rinse the block and let it dry. Letting it sit in water too long will cause warping, so make a quick hand cleanup the first thing you do after using this set.

Philips head machine screws hold the blades in place and are likely to be the only part you might wear out. They will last much longer if you get a good quality screwdriver to fit them--avoid the two dollar bargain bin styles and avoid trouble. The steel bands of the mezzaluna's handle form gaps where food can easily lodge out of sight, so give the knife a good inspection before calling it clean.
