Italian Chestnut Knife
The secret to successfully roasting chestnuts is to score the shells beforehand-a task easily performed with this knife. Carving a line or an "X" in the shells allows the nut to breathe during roasting, which prevents them from exploding from steam build-up. Made of stainless steel, brass and rosewood. After roasting, use the knife to remove the meat inside the shell. Hand-wash. Made in Italy.
