CAUTION! When slicing bread with a knife be careful not to place your fingers in line with the cutting action of the knife. Do not allow children to use this product. Handle with care.

Buy adjusting the wooden vertical knife guides, (loosen the wing two wing nuts) this guide is designed to cut slices from 1/8 to 1 3/8 inches vertically quickly and easily. The loaf width can be up to 7 inches wide. The minimum thickness you can obtain has a lot to do with the density and softness of the bread you are cutting. My goals were to make it easy to use, affordable, durable, easily stored and most of all slice straight slices of bread every time. Plus be usable by right or left handed people. The guide is easily disassembled by removing three wing nuts to store. Tools are not required.

Notice in the pictures, where your knife will contact the guide as you finish slicing your loaf vertically, I have placed solid oak in a vertical direction to aid in prolonging the surface of your slicing guide. It is extra work on my part that you will appreciate as you use your new slicing guide.

The slicing guide ships with a anti slip mat that is placed under the slicing guide to stop it from sliding on your countertop while slicing. If your mat wares out you can purchase one locally.

I personally hand craft each bread slicing guide in Lincolnton, Georgia from solid 3/4 inch oak lumber. It will last a lifetime with proper care. Just clean with a damp cloth. Do not soak with water.

The finish used is food grade mineral oil that meets US FDA requirements for food contact surfaces, and is safe for all food preparation surfaces. The penetrating quality of food-grade mineral oil brings out the depth of grain in wood and helps prevent drying and cracking. You may apply more mineral oil or cutting board oil as the wood dries over time.

All shipments are shipped FREE. Your order will ship the same day or the next business day from when I receive the paid order. Transit time is usually 2 to 3 days.

If your slicing needs are different than those listed above, message me your required thicknesses. It’s quite possible I can custom build a guide to meet your specific needs.

Videos are available showing some of my guides being used by going to “You Tube” and searching for “Mystery Lathe”.

A few words of advice:

This guide has an overall width of 8 1/2 inches and will not work well with a short 10 inch bread knife. I use a 12 inch but prefer a 14” bread knife.

The guides cutting slots for the knife are 1/8 inches wide.

The bread needs to rest on your counter and cool down to room temperature. I find that the longer it rest the better it will slice. The minimum thickness you can obtain has a lot to do with the density and softness of the bread you are cutting.

Use caution while slicing with a knife to avoid injury. Knife not included with guide.
