    It’s a rocker knife predominantly used for chopping herbs. Not to be confused with it’s much larger cousin the pizza knife.

    Or to give its ‘proper’ or other name, a Mezzaluna

    Rubbish to all previous comments (with the utmost respect)

    It is a hand-held, extremely slow and painful, neck-severing device for MP’s heads!

    It’s a military boomerang, much favoured by the Irish Army.

    Mezzaluna is correct. It is quite similar to the ulu used by Eskimos.
