Iberian ham come from the Iberian black pig breed. The main characteristics that distinguish the quality from all other ham is derived from the purity of the breed; the breeding of the Iberian pigs that roam and graze freely in the elm and cork oak pasturelands, the diet of the animal and the curing process of the ham, which usually ranges from between 8 and 36 months. Iberian ham is distinguished from all other by its unique and distinctive texture, aroma and flavour although the flavour varies depending on the amount of acorns the pig has grazed on and also depends on hoy much exercise the animal has had.The Iberian acorn ham is one of the healthiest foods in the Mediterranean diet, since it is rich in iron, magnesium, calcium, zinc, and mainly phosphorus, all essential for bones and cartilages.

A elegantly designed support system inspired in the Venetian Gondolas, offer a optimal support due to the Butterfly-screw system that is incorporated in this support system.
Due to the shape of the blade, long, thin, narrow and sharp, you will have a precision tool with which you can slice thin slices and with a flexibility that will allow you to follow the shape of the ham.
