The base member has therein a resilient pad which has a number of pill receiving pockets which are divided in half by a knife blade which is embedded within the resilient pad. The top member also contains a resilient pad. When the base and top members are pressed together, the pills in the pockets are pressed against the cutting edge of the cutting blades and are cut in half simultaneously. One end of the top member advantageously has its side walls formed in the shape of a scoop which can be used to dispense the pill halves into a container or the like.
