Awesome restoration video from David of Cool Again Restoration. There’s so much thought that goes into the restoratoin, which David explains at length in the video description. I appreciate how he does his best to maintain a baseline level of historical accuracy while also acheiving functionality. I mean, what would a cheese slicer restoration video be worth if we didn’t get to see some cheese getting sliced and diced by the end of it!?
In this restoration video I restored an antique butter or cheese slicer from around the year 1905.
More about the slicer :
this item was used in commercial purpose. It was usually used in shops for the exact purchase of slices of butter-cheese or in luxury hotels where pats of butter were served in the morning at breakfast. You can cut one pound of butter into pats for individual servings. The butter or cheese lies in the top and is pushed to the left into the wires while you turn the handle. Another part is located on the same axis as the handle and has a well-stretched wire attached. As soon as the butter is pushed through the rotation of the handle, by the same motion, that wire will cut the butter.
