It is serrated.

Oh but there's a whole story there. The pitch, tooth, hook, set and kerf all tell a little bit about what it's made for.

If nobody guesses correctly in a day or two, I will post a close-up picture as a hint.


That's fair. So first guess, pizza cutter.

2nd guess, Bone Saw...

@Bill - I am surprised to hear that Ann likes her mini-Cuisinart. I had a mini for a short time and found it to be annoying. Too much washing for simply chopping one onion... I do like my big Cuisinart though. I am on my second one! And as for weight gain, I've put 60 pounds on Eric in the 20 years I've known him. I challenge Ann to top that!!!

I got married in a suit with a 36 inch waist. I was up to 44 at one point, but have fought my way back to a 42. My wife has the chop/clean sequence down to an art. She can Cuisinart an onion and then clean up while I'm still trying to remember which way to slice the onion first. I think it is her Dutch genes.

What is its purpose and how does it work?[/b]



For cutting bread.

And we have a winner!!!

Yes! I posted a picture of a very large cake layer leveler/slicer. Occasionally I make wedding cakes for friends and I use this tool to level and slice 12 inch cake rounds into horizontal layers that can be filled and frosted. (This tool works on smaller diameter cakes as well.) If you look very carefully at the feet of the leveler I posted, you will see that the height of the blade can be adjusted up and down by twisting the feet.

Dang j mercer! Did you go to culinary school or something or are you just a hobby chef like the rest of us lumpers?!!! I thought I'd really found a stumper with that picture...

Over to you, sir.
