I recently discovered the hash knife, or Ula knife, and it is the trick. You can dice an onion or pepper in no time, at all. Joanne just asked me to cut up some cilantro for her. She said she wanted it cut up pretty small. In just a couple of minutes I had it cut up into very small pieces. You're cutting with a rocking motion so you'll need to be careful with your fingers and thumbs as it would pretty easy to have a mishap. Maybe y'all are experienced with them but I just found out about them and wish I'd known about them sooner.
