Steel Herb Chopper | Wicks Forge

$44.00

Spice up your kitchen with this handmade herb chopper. Each herb cutter is hand forged from one piece of steel using traditional blacksmithing tools and techniques.

The choppers have a linseed oil finish which gives the steel a nice dark bluish-black patina. The cutting edge is approximately 4″ (100 mm) wide and is hand-ground to a medium sharp edge suited for chopping herbs. It can be resharpened over time using any knife sharpening system.

Wicks Forge cooking tools are finished in a similar method to seasoned cast iron cookware, and like cast iron pans, if used and cared for in the same manner will last generations. Hand Wash the piece after use (preferably without soap), and then coat with a thin layer of cooking oil after toweling them dry to prevent surface rust. Any surface rust that does form can be removed with a brillow pad, wire brush, or steel scouring pad. Once removed, reseal the piece with a thin layer of cooking oil.

This item is located at the Center for Maine Craft in West Gardiner.
