Herb Snips


Essentially a pair of scissors with multiple parallel blades, herb snips effortlessly expedite the tiresome act of mincing. With their help, scallions or other fresh herbs can instantly transform into a manageable, chopped pile. This take on herb snips features five three-inch stainless steel blades stacked on each silicone-coated arm. And although they'll likely remain in the arsenal of only the most pampered chefs, they also double as great low-tech household shredders. (Also on Cool Hunting: Shredding Scissors.)

You can buy the herb snips for $13 at Chef's Catalog.
