Hand Forged Herb Chopper | Ulu Style Chopper, Herbalist Chopper, Herbalism Tool



This listing is for an ulu-style herb chopper. I forge them from one piece of spring steel: the blade is roughly 4.75" across the longest span, though the deep curve of the blade means that the cutting belly is about 5.5" long.

I hand forge each chopper from spring steel, oil quench and then temper at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for both edge retention and toughness. I then apply a cutting-board-oil finish for a bit of rust protection. Food safe!

I've left the blackened forge finish on the handle and gripping surface of the chopper, for looks and grip, and for a small amount of extra anti-rust character.

I'm happy to offer individually molded, friction-fit blade guards in dark brown with contrasting light stitching.

The spring steel I forge these choppers from will last a lifetime, but do require some rust protection! For a long-term patina wash and dry the chopper thoroughly after use, or to maintain the satin finish keep it oiled with vegetable or cutting-board oil.
