The Mezzaluna

Named after it's shape, mezza (half) luna (moon), this curved knife usually has a handle on each end and creates a rocking motion while it is chopping.  It is great for woody herbs when you need a very fine chop.  I picked one up a few months ago.  I don't use it too often, but for the right dishes, it can save a lot of time and effort!

While this is by no means a kitchen necessity, it definitey comes in handy!


  1. if you find that annoying to clean, you can actually buy a mezza luna with 1 blade .. makes for easy cleaning!

  2. Thanks Frank! That's honestly what stops me from breaking it out very often, one more thing to clean!
