High end mezzaluna?

strangemd Jan 10, 2012 07:25 AM

I'm a long time user of mezzalunas for herb chopping, garlic, etc. Been noticing, however, that the ones I own don't stay very sharp, and are rather difficult to resharpen. Anyone aware of a knife maker who makes high quality mezzalunas?

    Both Henckels and Wusthof make them. The henckels is a double blade with curved handle. Wusthof uses the traditional double handles.

      Thanks! The Wusthof looks pretty good. Still wondering how I'm going to get that thing on an EdgePro. ;-)

        The Wusthofs don't have much edge to them. They are sharpened more like a meat cleaver.The henckels is a heck of a lot sharper along with the blades able to come off to sharpen even though they are a single side grind.
