If you want a bread slicing guide that works and allows you to chose between two thicknesses of bread slices small in size and weight and not spend a lot of money, here it is. No fancy adjustments on this guide just flip it over for two thicknesses of your choice. By resting the cutting knife on the top of the slicing guide (keep it there) and moving it back thru the bread a perfect slice of bread will be cut every time. Flip the guide over and insert your knife into the slot and cut your second thickness. With a little practice you can do it every time.

All shipments are shipped USPS Priority mail and insured by the USPS for loss up to $50. 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.

This guide is made of solid oak side rails and oak veneer for the bread tray. With a hand rubbed food safe mineral oil finish.

This guide series is lite in weight and very compact at only 2 1/2" tall. Thus making it super easy to handle and store.

Should I buy this slicing guide over the other slicing guides? That's like asking should I buy a Ford or a Lincoln. It all comes down to personal preference and cost. All of my guides work on the same principle of aligning the knife even with the bread. So it really doesn't matter if you spend $17 or $40 they all will slice perfect slices of bread.

This guide is designed to accept bread loaves up to 5 1/2" wide. If your loaves are wider than 5 1/2" I make an "Extra Wide Horizontal Guide" that accepts loaves up to 6 1/2" wide.

If you need different thickness for your slices of bread, message me with your needs and I can build it for you. No extra charge!

Videos are available showing the guide being used by going to “You Tube” and searching for “mystery lathe”.

*****IMPORANT***** The guides cutting slot for the knife is 3/16" wide. If you are going to be using an electric knife, make sure the blade assembly thickness is less than 3/16". Make sure you check the thickness at the tip of the blade where the two blades are connected together. If it measures 3/16" or greater you will not be able to get the blade into the slot to slice your bread. We use a Cuisinart electric knife and it fits the slot without any problem.

By reducing the material required to build this guide and eliminating any adjustments I can offer this guide at a very attractive price. The construction quality and the slicing ability of the guide have not been jeopardized in any way. This is a quality product that will last a life time if taken care of properly. Never soak in water. Simply wipe the guides surfaces with a damp cloth when it needs cleaning.

This bread slicing guide is made by myself in Lincolnton, Georgia. No plastic parts to break.

My goals were to make it easy to use, affordable, durable, easily stored and most of all slice straight slices of bread every time. It also needed to be compatible using either an electric or bread knife. Plus be usable by right or left handed people.

The guide ships with one anti slip pad. This is used under the guide so that it will not move around as you slice your bread.

I feel I accomplished all of my goals in designing and building this bread slicing guide. After you try it I think you will agree. You can spend a lot more for other guides that will not work any better than this one. In fact I think this one works better than all others I have tried. It will last a lifetime with proper care. Just clean with a damp cloth. Do not soak with water.

A few words of advice:
The guide is over 7" wide and will not work with a short 8" bread knife. I use one that is 12" long. They are available on line or most home good stores. Our electric knife has a blade length of 7 1/2" and works fine since it does the sawing, not you as in a bread knife that needs to saw back and forth.

It has been my experience that even though the guide has a 1/2" slice thickness measurement for example, the actual thickness can very slightly. Loaf density or pressure applied by the cutter does effect the slices thickness by a small amount above or below the measured 1/2". As you gain experience in the use of the guide, you will be slicing your bread like a pro every time.

The bread needs to rest on your counter and cool down to room temperature. We find that the longer it rest the better it will slice. We let ours rest for at least 4 hours before slicing.

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

Returns and exchange details

No exchanges, returns or refunds will be made for iteams made out of wood I find in the forest surrounding my home.

Bread slicing guides may be returned if unused and in original condition. The shipper is responsable for the return freight.

Shipping damage or loss will be covered by USPS shipping insurance.

Why such a hard line policy?

The wood I am using to make each item (this does not apply to Bread slicing guides since they are made of new material) has been laying on the forest floor for many years. It has been subjected to insects, rain, wood decay and green moss. Then baked in the Georgia heat and humidity.

So.......the finished item can and may have cracks, bug holes, wood decay, nicks, marks, green moss and be discolored due to its exposure to nature over the years.

That is why....each wood item I make is so unique and one of a kind. They are different!! That is why you are buying it!!

I cant guarantee natures work. I can only assure you that when I am working on the wood all the skill and ability I have will go into what nature has provided me. My craftsmanship is in every piece I turn.

What happens after the piece is done in the mystery wood shop will be a mystery to all.

PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION OF THE ITEM YOU ARE LOOKING AT CAREFULLY AND STUDY THE PICTURES CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR PURCHASE. Remember what you see in the picture is what you get, minus color variation due to monitors and lighting conditions.

No exchanges, returns or refunds will be made with the excepton of Bread Slicing Guides.
