I personally hand craft each Oak bread slicing guide in Lincolnton, Georgia one at a time. This guide is made from solid 3/4-inch oak lumber for the side rails and 1/2-inch oak veneer for the bread table. It will last a lifetime with proper care.
The guide is designed to cut three different thickness of bread 1/4-inch, 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch quickly and easily horizontally. Select the width of guide that matches you loaf width. 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's straight slices of bread every time. Plus be usable by right or left-handed people.
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.
Knife not included with guide.
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.
Clean your guide with a dry or damp cloth. Do not soak in water or place in a dish washer.
Can you cut yourself on this guide? Absolutely! Use caution while slicing. Do not allow children to use the guide. Knives are sharp and will cut bread and you along with it. 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.

Videos are available showing the guide being used by going to “You Tube” and searching for “Mystery Lathe”.
A few words of advice:
For the 6 1/2 inch (overall width is 8 inches) a 12-inch blade length bread knife is recommended.
The bread needs to rest on your counter and cool down to room temperature. I find that the longer it rests 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.
If your bread thickness 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.
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 "firstname.lastname@example.org".

Quality is great! Works well for my large crusty Boules. Definitely need a longer knife- My 10" kind of works only using one side as a guide. Excited to try it out as intended with the 12" knife I have on order.
