Half-Moon Chopping Knives

Invented by Silvio Pacitti in 1708 as an easier way to chop vegetables and herbs, mezzaluna knives remain a staple in kitchens across the world, and for good reason: they’re elegant, effective tools, and function incredibly well as a manual alternative to a food processor.  Compared to a standard chef’s knife, the Half Moon Chopping Knife utilizes much more downward force and rocking action to produce clean, precise cuts without the need to drag or pull the blade.  The positioning of the handles keeps your hands and fingers far from any cutting edges, making it one of the safest cutting tools in the kitchen as well as one of the most effective.  Made in Italy, ours are available in two sizes, the smaller measuring 5 5/8” across and the larger 10 ¼”.  Both have natural beech handles.
