Instructions --------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Peel the shallot so there is a flat side.

Grip the knife?with your middle, ring and pinky fingers around the handle. Clasp your thumb and forefinger on each side of the blade's base to control cutting.?Curl the fingertips of your other hand on top of the shallot to keep it in place.?4. Lift the knife completely off the cutting board and cut the shallot into thin, parallel slices by bringing the blade downward and backward repeatedly. When doing this, keep the tip of the blade close to the root without going through it. The root will hold these initial slices together and make cutting easier.? 5.
