I thought Lizardhead’s pizza getter needed a pizza cutter, so I turned one just for fun. I hope he and everybody will like it as much as I do.
The cutter is jarrah and the handle is camphor laurel.

Great, nice contrasting woods. How well does it cut? Finished with mineral oil?

Great looking pizza cutter, if you and Lizardhead were a few miles closer we might be able to see just how
the getter and cutter would work together, but like Tim I am curious. Have you tried it out on a pizza yet?
Thank you for sharing.

Fantastic idea. I think the massaranduba i have will work great as the cutting disk. Since i don’t have a lathe i will have to come up with some other way of making it. Massaranduba Works great as a bottle opener and only bad pizza is harder than a bottle cap.
