Berkel World

Berkel slicers and scales of the time

Today, after more than a century of history, Berkel slicers and scales continue to enjoy a vast market and a great reputation.

The oldest slicers are still appreciated for their mechanical precision, for the quality of the materials and also for their refined elegance.
They have become real cult objects, therefore sought after and listed by collectors and antique dealers from all over the world.

The Officina dei Ricordi everywhere searches for these rare objects and restores them with love and craftsmanship, bringing them to new life.


In the world, we look for markets, second-hand shops, old taverns, shops, and wherever we can look for these slicers and scales that are increasingly difficult to find.


Many have been and are the difficulties, but what pushed us and encourages us to continue is the most important thing … PASSION! both ours and that of highly skilled craftsmen who work with us.

Berkel History

Wilhelmus Adrianus Van Berkel was born at Enschot, Holland, on 5th February 1869 and died at Montreaux, Switzerland, on 11th December 1952.
He was a butcher with a great passion for mechanics. His brains, urged by necessity to improve the old cut tools, induced him to invent the first mechanical slicing machine of his times and called it “Berkel Model A”.
