Grab your favorite stock pot & soup ingredients, then savor the heft & utility of hand forged kitchen chopping tools. Crafted from steel, these blades engage you in an old-fashioned way that feels novel to our generation of home cooks. On the left is the herb chopper with a curved blade that rocks back and forth to mince fine greens ($30), while the heavier chopper on the right is shaped to chop vegetables with ease. The design puts the force of your hand directly over the blade for efficiency. The "S" is the maker's mark signifying the blacksmith, Al Stephens, from Athens, Alabama. The line also includes a bow-shaped wire cheese cutter, a multi-purpose rocking chopper, and a serious pizza cutter guaranteed to cut through any pie.
