Berkel Slicer – Model L
Created between 1907 and 1916, the Berkel slicer model L is certainly the one that was built the most and is also the first to be exported from Holland. The model was distributed first in Italy by the Milanese retailer Bach & Co and later also in South America where – in those very years – Berkel Argentina was founded. The machine, that in many aspects is similare to the Berkel C and D models (the first built in 1898), has a flywheel-driven movement, the carriage rests on four wheels and is guided by a blade that descends inside the casing; the upper clamp is held between two racks and also advances with the worm screw system, regulated by a numbered rod. The blade, 350 mm of diameter, is mounted on the round shoulder to which the metal glove box and the nameplate are attached; the last one is different according to the countries where it is bought. In the upper part of the shoulder we find the blade sharpener, which is composed with chromed pieces, all visible and without casings.
This vintage model is accurately and professionally restored and is one of the flagships of the vintage-style slicers of the historic Dutch brand.
