    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.

    Yeah the ulu knife. It's a inuit thing right? skinning, food prep, igloo construction, like an arctic multitool.
    I think they pass them down through the family, and the knowledge of the ancestors is passed to the next generations.

    An ulu (Inuktitut syllabics: ᐅᓗ, plural: uluit, English: "woman's knife"[1]) is an all-purpose knife traditionally used by Inuit, inupiaq, Yupik, and Aleut women. It is utilized in applications as diverse as skinning and cleaning animals, cutting a child's hair, cutting food and, if necessary, trimming blocks of snow and ice used to build an igloo.[2]

    From what I read about the ulu knives some years ago, they were like an all-purpose type knife.

    Lots of chefs have gravitated towards using them for chopping various food items when prepping for cooking, because of their ease of use.

    A lot of custom knifemakers are making them for customers as well. I think there is a renewed interest in them now, because a lot of celebrity chefs on TV are using them.
