Lunch Bag

Brice Meat Slicer – Jim from The Lunch Bag

Jim and his brother Nick run the local sandwich deli near my work, it’s called The Lunch Bag in Kent Town. They make a good cup of coffee, and a pretty mean double cut roll (they claim to have invented it).

I got talking to Jim about T.I.F.B. a few weeks back, and mentioned I had 9kg of bacon curing, with no apparent way to slice it. Being the dead-set legend that he is, Jim offered to slice it for me on his schmick new deli slicer, in exchange for a sample of my first batch, an offer that would both save me a few hours of knife work, and lead to my next official trade.
