    It looks nice, can you use the guard during all functions of use . It looks like dangerous the way shown in the video.

    I threw the guard away years ago, never used it. You have to respect it, it will take a finger off, just like a knife.

    I've had the Bron mandoline, which Buba refers to, for many years and it's still going strong.  It's versatile and will do quite a few different cuts, but it's a bit pricey- the basic model goes for around $130, which has all the stuff you need.

    Actually, I would suggest you get one of the much cheaper plastic ones and see if you like the technique and the results, and then move up to the pro model. It is a real pleasure to use.
