Must be a guy thing.

Mandolin slicer at most kitchen gadget places will work just as well.

yep, gotta go with Blondie on this. Mandolin slicer is easier to clean, has more versitility and is cheap enough to have a couple as spares.

Not really a new idea. I have one similar to this that is about 60 years old and belonged to my mother.

That's a neat little gadget. Be good for minimalist camping. But I prefer a knife. I do have a cheap mandolin and a nice kraut cutter.
You know, it wouldn't be hard to make that little tool. A long thin bolt set in a handle, and a modified scraper blade with a matching nut epoxied on a hole near the end. I could get the parts for a buck or two, dependinging on what I use for a handle.
Jus' sayin'

I found my Salvation Army bargain the other day. Bought a hand crank rival meat slicer, or can slice other items as well. So excited I got it for 4 dollars

Arkie, if you try making one in your spare time, try to find some bolts with various thread sizes so you could slice to different thicknesses.

Some steady testing will take care of that! :D

Cool slicer. My father had one like that, mine now since he's moved on. He made a box that fit inside the slides to shred cabbage and lettuce it helped hold them in place. (coleslaw,sour kraut,etc) I haven't tried it yet. Also he had a lid or top on the box to push on so he wouldn't lose finger tips.
