Sounds like you are making cross cuts, not rip cuts and need them 1mm thick. I suggest a pull saw with a supper thin kerf. I have one no name brand pull saw that is pretty easy to keep straight if you score the cross grain first. As a bonus the teeth are fine so it leaves a pretty decent surface.

If you need them very thin, have you tried a handplane and a shooting board? You can get pretty decent shavings with a well tuned plane. Here I would go down the length of the board as opposed to a cross grain cut but you can get 1mm thick shavings if you wanted to.
