Hand forged Turkish zihr mincing knife with carbon steel blade and hardwood handle.

Made for use with a rocking motion, these large blades make quick work of mincing meat, herbs and vegetables together. Think of it as a giant single handled mezzaluna or hachoir.

The texture and resulting flavors of food cut with these zirh are distinct, theres a very good reason these have not been entirely replaced by electric grinders in the Middle East. We are really happy to have finally found a source for them.

Please note these are roughly finished, blades often have small rust spots and handles can have small nicks or chips.

Blade is 11.75” from tip to heel as a crow flies, 15” overall length and 3 1/8” wide

Please note that these knives can vary widely in size and weight.

This is a carbon steel knife. Carbon steel is expected to develop a dark patina with use. It needs to be hand washed and towel dried soon after use. Do not air dry. Do not put it in the dishwasher. Long exposure to moisture and debris will result in rust. Any rust development should be removed with a light abrasive.

Use on a quality wooden cutting board will help the knife stay sharper for longer. Use on hard surfaces like plates and bamboo will reduce the edge life and can result in edge damage.

We recommend hand sharpening on whetstones. We have found that most western knives perform best with a medium finish starting around 1000 grit. Avoid pull through sharpeners and non-water cooled mechanized sharpening. Steel honing rods work well with this knife.
