Here we have 3 vintage, metal kitchen utensils. These great kitchen collectibles were made by the Bluffton Slaw Cutter Company of Bluffton, Ohio.
The Bluffton Slaw Cutter Factory was opened in Bluffton, Ohio in 1915. Local entrepreneur wanted to manufacture the 'Best Slaw Cutters and Graters' in the US. So the company was started and continues to operate continuously for the past 98 years. I've heard that you can travel there and take tours of this company today.
These 3 slaw cutters have handles for easy hanging on the wall or for using them. One slaw cutter has a medium sized grate and another slaw cutter has a small sized grate. They are made of metal. Very interesting items. One of the cutters has the original price of 50 cents stamped on it. What was the last item you saw that had its price permanently affixed on it ? AND--how old must it be to only cost 50 cents ? The cutters are in good condition for their age. They do show some small signs of use. There is some normal age tarnish and minimal amount of rust present. Cutters measure 13 inches long. They are still sharp. Be careful of your fingers when using these tools. The blades are very sharp and useable or would make great decorations on your kitchen wall. A great addition to any grater collection and as useable today as it was many years ago.
