Ethnic vegetable cutter. The wooden base is made based on the original design and finished with mineral oil. The blade is at least 50 years old. Still sharp and beautiful.

MAFE – it is still used in southern Indian rural area & also by old people. The vegetables are cut on it by sliding them on the blade like the.tomato I have put there. It is not used to chop. An expert makes short work of kilos of vegetables. Even meat, fish is cut on that. When not in use it will be closed and stored.

Thank you Bushmaster: Donsol: Jim: Majuvla

Ahhh so the blade is fixed?
Perhaps I should forge me a replica to test this.
Thanks,
