The Kuhn Rikon Mezzaluna is a staple of Italian kitchens, named after its shape Half-Moon this knife is used for cutting herbs and making pesto. The mezzaluna also makes cutting onions and celery a joy. The rocking action of the blade cuts much like the action of a cooks knife. It's perfect for chopping, dicing and mincing of veggies, herbs and spices. It's quicker and safer than a straight-bladed knife. You use a rocking motion when using this knife. Place food on a cutting board and rock the blade back and forth. A skilled chef will never remove the blade from the cutting surface. This is a quick and safe form of mincing.

This is my second mezzaluna. Third? My first attempt was the OXO Good Grips Salad Chopper and Bowl. I don't think the OXO's double pizza cutter chopper counts as a mezzalune. The OXO was tiring.
My second was a Amco Stainless Steel with Silicone Handle Mezzaluna. I much preferred it to the OXO cutter. It still took a good deal of work because the blade is not terribly sharp (but, still, handle with care!). However, the blade cracked even though I used it only in the OXO bowl. Still, I liked it, so I ordered another in the hope that the first was defective.
At the same time, I ordered the Kunh Rikon because I like their knives. They're the only ones I use in my kitchen.
This is a sharp mezzaluna--weapons grade. Well, not really. Their knives are sharper, but this mezzaluna should always be sheatheed when not in use. Don't throw it into a drawer without the sheath. It makes fast almost effortless work of chopping salad! I had to learn to back off from how hard I was using the Amco. Now, I feel like the guy in the old Ginzu commercials. Chop, chop, chop. All done!
I use it with my original heavy-duty plastic OXO bowl. The Amco didn't cut the bowl, The KR does! It's like watching hair grow. You don't see it in any single preparation, but over time the surface of the bowl is all cut up. I myself would not use it in a metal bowl for fear of dulling the blade.
