Herb Scissors look a little weird, but they really work! The principle is that 5 cutting blades are better than one, and mincing herbs just got easier. Particularly good for chives, parsley, cilantro, and other leafy herbs that you want in small pieces. Mincing herbs on the chopping block can be messy and wasteful, but the Herb Scissors allow you to cut herbs directly into the meal you are making. They are machine washable and durably made from quality materials. The package these scissors come in is 12cm wide x 3cm tall x 22cm long. It's the right size for shipping and it makes an excellent gift - perfect for a house warming present.
