I bought this to replace the saw tooth blade that was supplied with the slicer. The old blade made a passable job of slicing meat but this one is excellent for slicing my home cured bacon. I do not understand why the Graef do not give the option to choose either blade when buying the slicer. This blade has the advantage that one can sharpen it, unlike the one supplied. 5 stars for the blade. One star for Graef sales Dept.
This blade is essential for creating thin slices of hams and other cold cuts but sadly is not included as standard with the slicer. Easy to fit and sharp with very little maintenance required and has withstood the test of time.
I'm sure this is a great blade but it does not fit the meat slicer it is paired with by Amazon's recommended "frequently bought together" when you purchase. Supplier has been very helpful with sorting it out, but Amazon should ensure that if they are suggesting related items are frequently bought together, they do actually work together.
