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, knives are very sharp.

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 "mysterylathe@gmail.com". 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 73 and this is my hobby not a money grabbing business.

The "Horizontal Slicing Guide" plus the "Vertical Base Attachment" is designed to slice three different thickness of bread, 3/8 inch, 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch either horizontally or vertically. By using the "Vertical Base Attachment" along with the "Horizontal Slicing Guide" bread may be sliced in a vertical fashion. By using the "Horizontal Slicing Guide" alone, bread may be sliced in a horizontal fashion. To change your cutting method the base and guide slip together or apart easily. It only takes seconds to accomplish the change. No tools required.

The guide and base lay flat together for easy storage.

The slicing guide and base ships with a anti slip mat that is placed under the slicing guide to stop it from sliding on your countertop while slicing.

I personally hand craft each Oak “Bread Slicing Guide" and "Vertical Base Attachment" one at a time in Lincolnton, Georgia from solid 1/2 and 3/4 inch oak lumber and 1/2 inch oak veneer. The guide will last a lifetime with proper care. Clean with a damp cloth. DO NOT SOAK IN WATER.

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

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.

It has been my experience that even though the guide has a 1/2 inch slice thickness measurement, 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 inches. As you gain experience in the use of the guide, you will be slicing your bread like a pro every time.

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

Your order will ship free the same day or the next business day from when I receive the paid order.

A few words of advice:

The 7 1/2 inch guide has an overall width of 9 inches and will not work with a short 10 inch bread knife. I use one that is 14 inches long. For the 6 1/2 inch (overall width is 8 inches) and 5 1/2 inch (over all width is 7 inches) guides I use a 12 inch bread knife.

The guides cutting slots for the knife are 3/16 inches wide. If you are going to be using an electric knife make sure you check the thickness at the tip of the blade where the two blades are connected together. If it measures 3/16 inches or greater you will not be able to get the blade into the slot to slice your bread.

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.

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.

Arrived with days of my order. Excellent handmade product. Looks stylish on my counter. Far superior to the cheap plastic junk made in China. Photos attached.

I absolutely love my bread slicer and all the multiple thicknesses, nothing else out there like it. Superb craftsmanship and awesome customer service. Bill was a pleasure working with, along with lightening speed shipping. I would recommend this to all the bread makers out there. Thank you Bill.

I highly recommend the bread slicer and the seller. I had questions about which size to order, and they were answered promptly. I was pleasantly surprised at how swiftly the order was received. As for the bread slicer, it is both beautiful and functional. Keep in mind, a very long knife will be needed to use properly.

Excellent quality, I looked for awhile before I found it and glad I purchased this one. Thanks!!
