Product Description

Short, and beautifully conceived. Plenty sharp, plenty of knuckle room, in hand it has all the comfort of a full size knife. Forget cabbage though, you'd need something longer for that.

But when it comes to the cutting tasks that suit it you wouldn't want to be using anything else. Roots, rhizomes, bulbs and tubers, delicate fish, plastic wrap, you name it. Ours is a favourite for cross-cut sunchokes, ginger and burdock. And it's lovely for slicing strawberries.

Naturally its uses are limited. Yes, it is short. Yes, it's very useful, and kind of fun.
