Snip the turkey. We recieved this comment last week after skgr posted on knives – Nourishment: Arm Yourself! – and agree that a good pair of scissors is a must in the kitchen.

As any surgeon can tell you, a pair of scissors is often handier than a knife for many settings (and safer), including the kitchen. Arista Surgical Supply on Lexington (near 26th) has display bins of good instruments where you can find a good stainless scissors for about $10-12. I frequently buy them as gifts for friends, and they end up using them all the time in the kitchen.

Though it is an odd gift, we like the unusual tip. (Thanks, Doug!) MGR
