This is the second (identical) one I've bought, I'll keep buying these.
Cleaver, easy to use, for long sliced string
beans (they taste better, cook more tender, absorb butter better when sliced long ways).
Our family tradition is to serve long sliced string beans every Thanksgiving, it takes a long while to do a big pot, one bean at a time, but the results are always appreciated and worth the time (most efficient way to cut them is with this tool).
Note: it makes a difference which side of the string bean is facing up in the tool, the sides of the tool can remove the hard tough seam in the bean, if you position the bean correctly in the tool when slicing. Discard the tough strand that is removed from the sides.
