These herb choppers have been hand forged from vintage recycled files. Each herb chopper is made by hand, and have slight variations and unique characteristics. These herb choppers are made to be used one handed, in a rocking motion similar to a mezzeluna, and will allow a chef to finely chop herbs with little effort. These herb choppers make the perfect housewarming gift, anniversary gift or as a great gift for foodies and kitchen tool lovers. Please wash in warm water with a mild soap and hand dry immediately. Do not allow to sit in water or place in the dishwasher or rusting will occur. To keep your herb chopper in perfect condition, please apply a thin layer of olive oil onto the chopper occasionally.
