This very handy Borner mandoline has German surgical steel blades with an ergonomic handle. Locking insert blades includes thick and thin slice insert, 3.5mm, 7mm, julienne blade inserts, a guard safety holder, and a storage caddy with a safety catch.
First made in 1956, this German company is the master of slicers. The V shaped blade on this mandoline gives no resistance as you slice. It has a wider carriage than most mandolines.
The julienne blade is for matchstick vegetables and the french fry blade makes thin french fries or stir fry sticks of vegetables.
