Chop, chop.

This special knife is traditionally used to cut meat and fish, but that’s not all it was born to do. It’s aces at slicing scores of other things, like vegetables, fruits, herbs, even pizza. As with all knives by Lamson—who, by the way, became famous after gifting a set of cutlery to the White House in the 1860s—this one’s got a high-carbon stainless steel (read: super-sturdy) blade, plus a smooth and solid wood handle for an easy grip. After a little time with this handsome tool, you’ll probably find yourself asking, “Why haven’t I always been chopping things this way?”
