comment Splitting a sandwich and not feeling deceived
I don't think so, because each cut affects four pieces, and there are only three players. Plus, you still cannot guarantee equal divisions, which is really the original problem. I was playing with the following example that exaggerates the "unfair cuts" problem. It would be impossible to distribute the pieces of this "sandwich" fairly, no matter how many players there are: i.imgur.com/3H1LWqG.png

It's a cool idea, but ultimately doesn't solve the sandwich-dividing problem, because you can't guarantee straight cuts and you can't guarantee precise angles. Slightly rotate the vertical cut clockwise, and green gets ripped off to black's benefit.
