The grip felt good in my hand, the blade was well-balanced, and the repetitive snipping motion was easy and fluid. Even after harvesting a bunch of basil for pesto, my hand didn’t feel too tired.
I also tried using the shears for mincing some dill for potato salad. Within just a few minutes, I had several tablespoons of dill ready to be tossed into the bowl. The sharp blade cut the herbs cleanly and without a lot of mess.
I was trying these shears out at my parents' house and was sorely tempted to slip them in my pocket when I left! I'm definitely planning on picking up a pair for my own kitchen.
What do you use for snipping herbs?
