- The greater the truffles surface area exposed, the greater the aroma from the truffle serving.
- The investment in your truffle will go a lot further.
However good your knife, you will not be able to consistently cut your truffle into paper-thin slices like a truffle shaver can. You will also risk cutting your fingers, especially as the remaining piece gets smaller and smaller. These professional-quality, adjustable truffle shavers can cut slices as thin as 0.2 mm and are among the best available.
We offer a choice of two high-quality truffle shavers made in Italy:
- A stainless steel truffle shaver made by Inox. It is dishwasher-safe.
- An olive wood truffle shaver, each with their own unique, beautiful grain.
Some users prefer a wooden handle to grip over a steel one.
Beside being used for slicing truffles, the shavers can be used for chocolate, vegetables, hard cheeses, etc. and wherever fine slices are necessary. The blades are very sharp so they must be handled with caution, especially when slicing small bits of truffle.
You can see some uses for your truffle shaver on our Cooking with Truffles page.
