Body made of cast iron, blade of stainless steel. Radvaad's high quality bread slicer soon became a classic, making it's way into most homes in Denmark. It was a very practical way to cut thin slices of the famous Danish rye bread, used for Smørrebrød, open-face sandwiches. The rye bread is dense and heavy, so the thinner slices are more appetizing and you would get more slices from your loaf.
