We came across this recipe for Asparagus Linguine with mint pesto on No Recipes and noticed the cutting tool used to cut the asparagus into julienne strips. It's a Japanese kitchen tool called a negi cutter. More about this little tool below the jump. Look and then tell us what you think...

We try not to clutter our kitchens with useless tools that we don't need. We aren't sure about this one, though. The negi cutter has multiple blades so it could be useful for making many julienne strips at one time. We see this as being useful for people who have wheat allergies and can't eat pasta, but like having julienned vegetables in place of pasta noodles, for example.

Want to start julienning away the easy way? You can buy them online at Amazon or Zensuke.
