J.A. Henckels Mezzaluna Makes Mincing Magic

There are lots of methods for cutting up herbs and nuts. You could grab one of those slap-chopping-mushing devices that feature a cup with blades that slam down when you hit the lid. You could pull out your food processor. You could use a good old knife and chopping board. Or you could do it in style with a mezzaluna.

J.A. Henckels 2-Piece Mezzaluna Set

This two-piece mezzaluna by J.A. Henckels will help you mince herbs and nuts cleanly and safely. The curved, double-bladed stainless-steel knife slices and chops as it rocks gently in the bowl of the hardwood cutting board. A two-band brushed-stainless-steel handle gives the super-sharp knife a sure grip and a stylish, contemporary look. Measuring 8 inches square and 1-1/2 inches thick, the wooden board features four rubber feet screwed into the bottom, so it won’t slide around on the table or counter.

Porsche knives are on the cutting edge

Most people know Porsche for their cars. But did you know they also design products for various companies? These products are loved for attention to detail and revolutionary shapes and ergonomics. This knife is a good example of creating a knife that is exceptionally sharp and comfortable. It also has a distinct Porsche look.

Chroma Type 301 Designed By F.A. Porsche 10 Inch Chef Knife

Cutting with a Chroma Type 301 knife is like driving a Porsche, and for good reason. Designed by Ferdinand A. Porsche (the designer of the Porsche 911) with input from renowned Austrian chef Jörg Wörther, Chroma Type 301 cutlery excels in both performance and looks. Sleek and sexy, each knife looks like one seamless piece, but the blade and handle are actually different types of steel. The blade is crafted of superfine Japanese 301 steel and hand-sharpened into an acutely sharp angle for precision cutting. The handle is made of durable 18/10 stainless steel, triangular in profile and flat-topped for leverage, a totally unique and ergonomic design. Announcing the transition spot between handle and blade is a metal “pearl” that lets the fingers know their position, in place of a bolster. The comfort and control, not to mention the spectacular visual appeal, of a Chroma Type 301 knife have made ardent converts of many chefs worldwide.
