A gadget that makes shredding herbs a snap

Herb scissors by RSVP mince, slice, and chiffonade fresh herbs in a matter of seconds.

Check out what these herb scissors do to scallions.
Every good cook knows that cooking with fresh herbs beats using the dried stuff, but doing so can sometimes be a real pain. Thyme is fairly straightforward and can be stripped off easily, but some herbs, like chives, basil, sage, and rosemary, are tough to slice, especially for those with big fingers.

With these herb scissors from RSVP, cutting tricky fresh herbs is a snap. You can easily chiffonade basil, mince chives, and snip scallions into tasty miso-soup-size rings. Since the scissors have several blades, you can cut an entire stalk of herbs in only a few scissor strokes.

The kicker is the awesome price: at around $10, the tool is totally accessible in addition to being useful. You can check out the herb scissors as well as some customer reviews at their page on Amazon.
