Chestnut Marking Knife
Any who has experienced exploding hot roasted chestnuts will appreciate the importance of having the leathery chestnut shell cut before cooking. Chestnuts are almost 50% water so if the outer shell is not cut (marked) then steam builds up inside the nut as it roasts until the pressure builds to a point where the nut actually explodes. This beautifully crafted knife from Italy is perfect for scoring chestnuts prior to cooking. No more having to dangerously juggle a kitchen knife. This knife has a small sharp blade and molded handle which is perfect.
