Prototype # 3 3/8, 1/2, 13/16, 15/16, 1 3/16, 1 3/8-inch thick Slices Loaves Up To 5 1/2-inches Wide Sliced Horizontally

Sorry, this item has sold.

This guide is a prototype of a new line of bread slicing guides I'm working on for future sales. The finial version of this new style may differ slightly and will be priced higher. After using this guide, I'm confident that you will be satisfied with your purchase of this prototype. If not, I will refund your purchase price and you do as you please with the guide.



Horizontally, slice bread loaves up to 5 1/2-inches wide, into 3/8, 1/2, 13/16, 15/16, 1 3/16, 1 3/8-inch thick slices. It is easily done with this ultra compact bread slicing guide hand crafted by Mystery Lathe. The construction is out of solid oak hardwood for the frame and 1/4-inch oak veneer for the bread table plus food safe cutting board material for the back stop. To keep the guide from sliding on the counter top as you slice, silicone pads are glued to the frame.

Notice in the photos, the picture with a ruler up against the guides slots. The six thicknesses are shown. By flipping the guide over from one side to the other any of the six thicknesses can be used.

Slicing horizontally: Rest the loaf on its end in the guide and insert the bread knife into the various slots, any of the above thicknesses can be sliced quickly and easily with this guide.

Stores compactly. 3 x 7 x 11 3/4-inch size when stored.

Take note of the "Box Joints" on the two corners of the slicing guide. They are there for two reasons .... strength and beauty!! This "One Guide" guide will last for generations. I use a food safe mineral oil finish to add beauty to the oak. It will dry out with time. To refresh the wood simply wipe on another coat of mineral oil or cutting board oil.

A few words of advice in using a horizontal slicing guide:

I have hundreds of my horizontal slicing guides all over the USA and 99% of the people using them are very happy as you can witness in my reviews. After selling close to 2,000 of my various style horizontal and vertical slicing guides I find that if you have issues with the use of your hands to slice bread, I advise you to not buy a horizontal slicing guide, buy the vertical guide. It requires more dexterity to slice horizontally than vertically. BUT........if your hands work........horizontal slicing is the fastest and easiest way to slice perfect slices of your bread. Don't forget that after you use your guide, if you're not satisfied, ask for a full refund within 30 days of purchase. The old saying "Practice makes perfect" applies to learning how to use this guide.

A bread knife with a blade length of at least 12 inches is recommended for slicing. A shorter knife will not work. Knife not included with order.

Do not place your guide into water or a dish washer. Simply wipe off with a dry or damp cloth if needed. The silicon mat is dishwasher safe.

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 77 and this is my hobby not a money grabbing business.

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.

Finish used: Food grade mineral oil.
