These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

If we think we're any better

forever, on and on...."

just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Thanks :)

what does it do?

bronxelf says:

Chops things. Think of it like a pogo stick with blades on the bottom.

Sprocket says:

so I'm presuming it chops herbs, garlic etc . . . as opposed to spuds, trees, pestering exes.

I'd guess at fruit, but could be a big ouch if incorrectly used.

Sprocket says:

it does look a little medieval

I usually use it for tuna and eggs, but it will chop anything, really.

* goes off looking for stuff to send to B'Elf to chop *

540air says:

Does look clever, but I've never seen anything like it over here. Is it expensive?

13th Mar 2007, 23:15

bronxelf says:

I don't even know if anyone makes them new anymore. I occasionally see them in antique shops.

Ebay has one. 5 bucks.

540air says:

Oh sorry, I thought it was a new tool. That would probably explain why I've not come across it, it's only the last few years I've begun to notice things like this, as I've got more interested in cooking :)

They really are quite handy. We always had one at home. My mother I'm sure still has her black handled one.

540air says:

It looks a fantastic device for sure. One of my favourite tools my mother had when I was young, was a wire egg slicer.
You'd put the egg in a recessed tray then fold the top down which was about five wires I think and it used to slice your boiled egg perfectly. I think you could use it for cutting cheese too. :)

bronxelf says:

I have one of those, too.

13th Mar 2007, 23:31

540air says:

You do? They are excellent. Why they are no longer available is beyond me :)

13th Mar 2007, 23:33

bronxelf says:

They're totally available here. You want one?

13th Mar 2007, 23:36

540air says:

Seriously? That'd be great. :)

13th Mar 2007, 23:38

Tori says:

Oh, I think I need one of those.

14th Mar 2007, 02:04

bronxelf says:

A tuna chopper? Ebay has several for $5 and under.

14th Mar 2007, 02:06

Tori says:

Yep, I am on ebay right now :)
