I received a gift today from a gardening friend in the mid-west. My friend had no way of knowing I had my eyes on these for a while now. I had first seen the Ulu knife of Alaska a couple of years ago in a video about chopping herbs and had been interested since.
I had some herbs that had been dried over the weekend so I popped them in the bowl side of the cutting board and tested it out. The rocking-cutting motion is distinct from what most of us are used to with a relatively straight blade and a flat cutting board, but I can see how with a little practice this would be extremely effective!
A big thank you to my friend for the gift. Sharing (seeds, tips, surplus produce, etc.) seems to be hallmark of the gardening soul and I am grateful to have been bitten by the bug and be counted among its ranks!
