you won't get a microplane unless you buy the microplane brand. SIze and shape depends on what you are comfortabel with and need...I have several sizes...a very small one for spices like nutmeg, and standard long one with handle for most items, and a shorter and courser cut one with handle for hard cheeses...makes lovely slivers for salads soups, and pasta.

Microplanes are cheaper at the hardware store. They might not have every size the kitchen store does, but they are in the hardware store because they were originally used for woodworking.

I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.
