How to Change Blades
Gently flip tabs up and away from casing.
Then open the soft grip handle by unlocking and lifting thumb tab until it releases. Rotate the tab outwards.
Lastly, flip open the front casing and remove the blade carefully.
Use caution when handling blade. Keep sharp edge away from your hand. Simply pinch blade (on surface area/away from the cutting edge) with index and thumb or grab by blade cover, then remove blade from case.
Before operating, ensure bolo casing is completely locked.
When not in use, slip the cover over the blade until it fits tightly over the entire surface area.
How to Operate
For comfort and security, place your hand around the top section of the casing with a secure grip and have your thumb resting on the thumb rest.
Place the blade in contact with cutting surface and roll gently back and forth over the food item. For larger food items feed food slowly towards the blade rather than moving blade to the food.
For smaller food items roll blade as desired. For best results roll blade without lifting it unnecessarily. If the blade slips or stops rolling, relax pressure on casing or lift and reposition on cutting surface.
To chop foods, use the trigger/brake. Lift the brake upwards with forefinger. Minimal pressure is required. This will lock the blade. Release pressure for rolling action.
This is a knife, and must be handled with caution like any other knife. Always use caution when cleaning, assembling or using the rolling knife. When cutting any type of food, it is always important that you keep your fingers far enough from the trajectory of the knife. To avoid harm, slow down momentum when approaching end of food.
Safest Cutting Surfaces:
It is highly recommended that you use bolo on appropriate cutting surfaces such as plastic and wood cutting boards. Some granite surfaces that are not highly polished may be used with bolo. Glass and highly-polished surfaces are not recommended.
Wash by hand only. Wash casing and blade separately in mild soap and warm water. Do not let either the blade or the casing soak in water for long periods of time. Remove parts from water and dry each part thoroughly before reassembling and storing. Pay attention to dry the area where the bearings are to ensure water doesn’t accumulate around the bearings.
There are 2 bearings, one on each side. If needed you can simply remove the bearings by using a kitchen fork to lift it out the bearing pin.
