Sausage Slicer

Post by Keymaster » Sat Jun 02, 2012 01:04

Awhile back someone from Europe on another forum posted a picture of a wooden slicer that I Liked so I copied it and made it out of food safe plastic. It still needs a lot of sanding and router the edges but here it is. If it works good I may make one out of walnut and Maple. I sharpened the stainless steel knife with a belt sander so I still need to take my diamond hone to it so its razor sharp.

Very nice workmanship. I think that I would favor a knife and a cutting board.

Pretty neat Aaron! How does it work?
About that hole in the handle... is that for the chain to go through?... you know... the one you chain your mother-in-law to the thing to do all the pushin'! :lol:
If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it probably needs more time on the grill! :D

Thanks guys, I really think like Ross said, I will use a knife more often than this . It was a idea to make out of wood so that when company comes over it is a nostalgic item that a person can pull out and leave a lasting memory in a persons mind of the fine salami that they either cut a slice on there own or had sliced for them. Hopefully not their thumb :mrgreen: anyway I will finish it in a few weeks and slice some salami and post some pictures if it is a winner or failure.....

Don't give up on it without playing with different blade angles. I think that you may need more of a slicing action than a chopping action. Posibly even a Vee shape knife that cuts from the bottom and the top on the same stroke.

Awesome workmanship there Aaron!

A while back I found a similar device called a "Biltong Slicer". I wish I would have time to build one of those, for now I just use a knife. :smile:
