Apple & Herb Chopper

This device at Smith’s Tavern was supposedly an apple and herb chopper.  The device is a rectangular wooden plank to which is mounted a hinged blade with an attached wooden handle.  A metal rectangular counting surface is embedded in the center of the plank. The top edge of the blade is concave and may have been another cutting surface.
