The plastic cylinder is placed over the vegetable, which has already been cut into pieces, and the spring rod is pushed down forcefully several times. The cutting blade moves up and down and rotates so that the vegetables are chopped into fine pieces. This model is mainly used for cutting onions. See also the onion handle.

Fireman's Axe
The fireman's axe mainly serves to break open doors and windows, but it is used for all kinds of purposes (1). Today it closely resembles a woodman's axe. The straight handle often ends in a small sphere to provide a better grip. Often there is a notch at the bottom of the blade to pull out nails and a spring strengthens the connection with the stem (2). Very common is a pointed axe, i.e. an axe with a heavy point opposite the edge (3). Here too one or two springs are often found. Today there are firefighter's axes made of a non-sparking alloy. The stem can be short (about 35 cm) or long (about 80-90 cm). The short handle often has slight bumps along its entire length to provide a better grip; when isolated, it is usually serrated. The handle of some models ends in a heavy iron point. [MOT] (1) Eg. to drive a peg of emergency into the wall. Certain models appear in military and security equipment.

Hay fork / bundle fork
The hay fork is a fork with 2 to 3 - sometimes four - round or square, pointed, slightly curved, iron or steel tines (approx. 15-30 cm; spacing: approx. 7-20 cm), which have a straight wooden handle of varying length (approx. 100-300 cm). Sometimes it is also a monoxil fork-shaped branch (1). The farmer prefers a steel hay fork with two tines, to put the sheaves on the cart at harvest time or to stick it from the cart in the attic. The one with three teeth or the wooden bundle fork is often used to turn the hay (see also the hay rake). There is also a double model with a row of 3 tines at the bottom and a row of 2 tines at the top to collect the hay into bales. [MOT] (1) Eg. ROBERT: 8-20.
