What Is It?
 
Since it's harvest season, we thought it would be appropriate to feature a kitchen item as this month's mystery tool. Those of you familiar with a mezzaluna will be able to determine the item's function without problem.

This antique chopping knife has a crescent blade that measures approximately 5-1/2" across. The blade's half-moon shape makes it particularly useful for chopping food items in a wooden bowl, possibly for making a hash. It's also great for chopping fresh herbs on a cutting board.
