Right. The item itself is real though, but I think I'll be fine without. It's not that hard to make straight lines on a pizza.

I'm honestly unsure that I've ever made a curved line with a pizza cutter...  Thinking about it, (as I have no true memory of the experience) the fact that pizza has depth to it assists in straight cuts with the wheel, due to the length of the arc submerged in pizza.  See diagram below.  Where a jigsaw for cutting wood is a shallow blade so it can turn with ease, the pizza wheel is a deep blade, making turns harder, even though it is a "wheel" because it always has an inch or two dragging through the mass of pizza.

Certainly I've made two consecutive cuts, in order to completely sever slice connective tissue that don't match, but I'm not sure that's ever been an issue of curving, merely an issue of angle consistency.

Very cool idea, but if a pizza business is serious about cutting equal slices, the Portion PadL is very simple to use and easy to clean.

Yes, but your Portion PadL would be hard to mount to a M16 and really clumsy if you did. You need a complete redesign if you hope to compete in the tactical pizza cutter market.
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

Lol, very true. I guess I'll stick to the conventional route.

I can still remember the days before Napoleon when a traditional pizza wheel was the forefront of bayonet technology, in use exclusively by the Italians. Then of course came Napoleon who proved that butter knives were more effective.

Well they say War droves technology. Just look at DARPA and the creme brule blow torch.

That item personifies "Let's take a really simple problem and deploy a very complicated solution."
