This flywheel slicer was built by Berkel between 1948 and 1956. Only on the Italian market, this machine went by the name of Berkel Model 21. Actually, being it an up-upgrade of the previous model of professional slicer, in the rest of the world it was sold and known as flywheel slicer Berkel Model 8. The changes adapted on this flywheel slicer, in comparison to the previous model, actually are just a few : the melt-casting structure of Berkel slicer model 21 is identical, as well as the scroll carriage with the helical threaded screw and the machine comb system fixed with a charge spring.
The graduate knob for the slice thickness regulation of this manual slicer is provided with a bakelite knob while the scrolling pivot is covered by a carter, no longer round but oval. The machine operation is with the classical open flywheel on which the “Berkel” decalcomania states. The blade of this manual slicer is a 370mm and it is assembled on the machine performing a bow shape. The sharpener of this machine was modified. Yet the mechanism stays classical Berkel with the painted cap and front mask. Everything was reduced in the dimensions as per model 9.
