The Rocking Knife is the ideal tool for mincing herbs, garlic, shallots, or finely chopping a wide variety of foods -- for example, tomatoes for sauces. It is an exceptional tool for mincing herbs to fully release their flavor. Similar to a mezzaluna, the cook rocks the deep-bellied blade across the cutting board to produce a fine mince. The razor-sharp edge makes the task fast and easy, too. The stainless-steel knife resists rust and stains, and is dishwasher safe! Now that you've saved all that time when preparing your meals, head out to enjoy your herb garden with a good book, and that old Southern favorite, a mint julep - no mincing required.
