I have one buried somewhere in this closet not far from where I am sitting.
When my dad died, it ended up in my possession. Not sure if its a big one or small one nor do I know if its any good.
But it is all metal and I know he used it I will now open the closet and find this thing. To see what it is.

I found it. Rival. All metal. Just like Craig's link shows. Looks like the blade is on backwards to me. Its serrated.

Yes, it's certainly no commercial slicer, but it gets the job done. You just need to work with smaller pieces of meat.

We also have one like Craig's link goes to. My Mom's cousin gave us her used one in 1981 so we could slice lots of meats (beef roast, boneless pork loin, boneless ham) for an anniversary party we were throwing for my folks. She told us to keep it, so we did. We've never had problems with it, have used it sporadically since then, and Himself found out that if your counter is slippery you can always put silicone pot holders under the feet to keep it still. Unless you plan on opening a deli I would think it would be sturdy enough for most any house use.
