A Cut Above

slicerCheese planes, or slicers, shave our favorite food into glorious ribbons; professionals often use this tool when offering tastes to customers because it allows them to pull wafer-thin slices. We like simple, non-adjustable planes as they are less prone to complication. This decorative model is the result of a partnership between a 125-year-old cutlery company and the reputable Santa Fe Stoneworks, which crafts the beautiful stone handles. Each comes with a lifetime warranty because, as Santa Fe Stoneworks owner Bob Wirtel says, “We want people to use these, not just buy them and keep them in a box.”

Slicers are $50 – $60 from Amazon and Santa Fe Stoneworks.
