Handy Karate Chop Knives

Gama Go's Karate Chopper Knife is for Black Belts in the Kitchen

— August 25, 2013 — Art & Design
The karate chopper knife is a fun way to chop lettuce, even if you're not a black belt in the kitchen. This knife is far from ordinary and boring. It is shaped like a giant karate-chopping hand that is ready to strike, and features a serrated blade on the hand's underside for swiftly slicing up leaves of lettuce. The size and coloring of the knife make it look like it belongs to a cartoon character, making exaggerated up-and-down chops to quickly slice salad ingredients.

The Gama Go knife is made of a dishwasher-safe plastic, which makes clean up a breeze. This novel kitchen knife makes an excellent gift for people who want to play with their food, although salad ingredients don't stand much of a chance with this knife around.
