After watching American Restoration and seeing Rick refurbish an old Berkel Slicer, I've been wondering about these. A nice refurbished one would be pretty cool. We'll see how much the tax man gives back this year.

Could you imagine this bad boy on the counter?

Wow that would be fun in the kitchen and quite a conversation piece.

Do you actually want one, or do you want to trade one for a pair of Hattoris?

Interesting strategy -- and it might work if it weren't for the fact that I would want the whole Hattori KD lineup for it ;)

Even the wife thought it would look great in the kitchen. That is the first step. And then next step is getting some wonderful meat to cut.

Edit: This is one of the sources of cured meat that I have used.

This was going to be my question. Doesn't much matter what we think it would look like on your kitchen counter if your better half isn't into it. ;)

I like it. Mean looking machine.

Looks like a neat machine and a complete PITA to use.

One of the versions has a removable portion that holds the meat and is a lot easier to clean. I'm not sure which model that is though.
