Thumbs up Re: Cutting pizza: wheel or knife

Well, I thought that I might make a prototype of a rocking knife.
I found the scrap of stainless, alraeeadyy shaped, which was left over from my chimney void hood, ground an polished a fairly sharp edge. Tomorrow, I will get a bit of that nice Tasmanian Blackwood that I have, shape a suitable handle and route a groove in it (if I have a cutter that fine) or cut one with a fine steel cutting disc, drive and glue the blade in.
It should hold the edge pretty well, if not it won't take long to solve as the whole blade only took 1/2 hour to make.

This is my baby:
Atlanta Fixture, Restaurant Equipment And Supplies, Cutlery, Kitchen Knives, Pizza Knife
The trick is to buy a box of pizza rounds and cut the pizza on it.

Went out in theshed and put my hand on a left over stool slat that was exactly the right size and machined, radiused to boot. Drag it into the workshop, put a new 1mm steel cutting disc in the angle grinder and ground/burnt a thin groove 15mm deep into the edge.
Had a little extra sharpening, it won't shave the hairs on my arm but I have 2 small cuts in my hand to teach me to be a little more careful.
Now all I have to do is to glue it, rather than rivet it (make it a bit more permanent) into the handle.
One rocking cutter for free in less than an hour.
Now to try out out next Sunday (Mothers day get together) and see if prototype 2 is needed.

I am a big fan of my 16" Lamsonsharp two handle pizza knife from Amazon via Chef Tools shown here on Amazon ($45.00. Amazon.com: LamsonSharp Pro 32871 16" Pizza Knife, two-handle, black handle: Home & Garden

I bought it because I didn't like how my pizza wheel moved the toppings around. I cut my pizzas on one of those flexible cutting boards and slide it onto a wire rack set in a half sheet pan with parchment paper under the rack (for easier clean up) to serve. The pizza joint in my old home town used to serve pizzas like this, but on round wire racks set in round pizza pans and I always liked how crisp the crust stayed from the first piece to the last.
