All of my guides are built with my hands, one at a time, in my wood shop located in Lincolnton GA. Slight variations from the pictures showing this bread guide may occur as I make production changes.

To adjust slice thickness, using the horizonal or vertical slicing method, simply slide the loafs backstop which is "Food safe" HDPE cutting board material, into any of the slots on the guide.

My goal was to develop a slicing guide that can slice vertical or horizontal, be easily adjusted for slice thickness, stores away compactly, durable, beautiful and yet be affordable. I think after using this guide you will agree on all of the above.

It is made out of solid Oak lumber with the only exception being the back rest for the loaf which is "Food Safe" HDPE cutting board material and is dishwasher safe. The guide will last a lifetime with proper care. Just clean with a dry or damp cloth. DO NOT SOAK WOODEN PART IN 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. You may apply more mineral oil or cutting board oil as the wood dries over time.

Slicing on the 7-inch guide, (over all width is 8 1/2-inches) a 12-inch blade length bread knife is recommended.

Can you cut yourself on this guide? Absolutely! Use caution while slicing. Do not allow children to use the guide. If you think you may injure yourself don't use the guide. Return it for a full refund. I want you totally safe and satisfied.

If you ever have any questions, issues or problems with your guide please call or text my cell phone: 315-868-3453 or email me at "". Give me a chance to make things right. Don't be surprised when I just say hello upon answering. This really is my personal cell phone. I'm 76 and this is my hobby not a money grabbing business.

I wrote Bill asking if he'd consider doing a custom version of his bread slicing guide that'd accommodate an even thicker slice, and he started to investigate the possibility without hesitation. In no time he'd figured out a way to make it work and then put it together. The end product works perfectly and is absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much!

High quality item that works very well. We are really happy! Thank you!
