This bamboo lettuce knife is exceptionally well balanced and features a large, ergonomically designed handle to reduce hand strain. Combined with its stunning appearance, it is the obvious choice for the discerning foodie. Not only is it great for lettuce and cabbage, it works equally well on crusty breads and cakes. The serrated cutting edge is designed to give a "hand torn" look to salads and eliminates the browning of cut lettuce that steel knives can cause. Great as a hostess or housewarming gift!
