As for all knife, blades wear out over the uses. De Buyer sharpener specially designed for mandolines blades will enable you to restore and preserve their sharpness.
Should the blades be defective because of many uses, you can buy them individually at our retailers’ and replace the old ones, except for V blades as they are directly integrated into the frame of the mandolines and cannot be changed.
Why is there sometimes a slight remaining waste when using my mandolin with straight blades ?
In order to meet the demand of consumers and users we decided to make it possible to use several sizes of Julienne blades with the same mandolin. That’s why the chariot has to remain a little higher above the tray when making the small julienne, which involves this remaining waste. This stems from the safety system of the chariot (sliding on the rail) that we put in place to avoid you any injury. In order to guarantee the sliding of the chariot above the blades (and therefore above the largest blade) without damaging them we needed some space. That’s why a thin sole remains.
