Ultimate Union or Standard

Standard or The Ultimate Union

Landers, Frary and Clark manufactured the "Standard". This parer adds a "chipper arm" to the Union's design. Once the apple is pared the chipping arm (which is designed as a third-class lever) slices the apple into chips, which can be dried or used for pie. The Hand-Driven gear has a small bevel gear that meshes with the central gear instead of the large modified helical teeth used in the previous Union designs. This parer is also known as the "Ultimate Union" among collectors.
