Cutting Board for Mincing Knife/ MezzaLuna
Printable Product Details Page
Purpose:A wood cutting board that has a circular bowl-shaped indentation in it. This allows for the mezzaluna to rock within the cutting board increasing the cutting surface area.
It's the raised thick part between the blade and the handle, which usually distinguishes the knife as fully forged.
The bolster acts as a guard providing safety, balance, sturdiness, and comfort.
Beware of companies that manufacture knives with an imitation bolster as these knives are invariably poorer in quality compared to a “one piece fully forged” knife.
