Antique Victorian wooden handled steel herb chopper by Robert Sorby.
“R Sorby” stamped on blade.
A large no-nonsense piece.
English. circa 1890.
Length of blade: 10.5 inches;
Width: 9.25 inches.
Weight: 550g (allow 1.25 kg once packed).
Condition commensurate with age and use – well worn with woodworm holes (which have all been treated) and a split in the handle. superficial marks & scratches and some corrosion – all part of its character.
Perfectly functional. or a nice display item.
