In the traditional Italian style, the mezzaluna cutting tool is perfect for quickly and easily chopping nuts, herbs and spices. The half-moon shaped mezzaluna features razor-sharp, Japanese stainless steel blades and a smooth comfortable handle. A small gap between the blades allows for optimal cutting without food getting stuck. For safe storage, the mezzaluna slips over the handle and is held securely onto the board's surface with magnetic mounts. The specially designed cutting board facilitates more efficient chopping and the ergonomic design of the mezzaluna means only one hand is needed to operate. The cutting board measures approximately 11-inch by 8-inch by 1-inch thick. A small gap between blades means food doesn't get stuck. Works well for nuts, herbs and spices.
