My Slice of Life started selling knives in it’s original form as Slice of Life Knife Sales in 2011, as a butcher I identified the lack of quality knives available locally for both trade and home use. Initially we traded at local markets and soon progressed to selling on ebay – this turned what was a hobby into a fully fledged business. After juggling this with a fulltime job as a butcher the decision was made to focus solely on the business and we haven’t looked back since. 2015 has been a big year to say the least!
We have added a full range of home butchers supplies and changed the business name to My Slice of Life to better reflect the current product range. Our bricks and mortar retail store was also opened in our home town of Wangaratta, Victoria to allow us to showcase our products and better service our customers both locally and internationally. Our core business values since inception have always revolved around honesty, service, price and product knowledge. We promise that as we progress this will remain unchanged.
I would like to thank anyone who has been apart of our journey up until this point, whether as a customer or someone who has simply given us feedback we truly value your support.

This news article is a little bit behind the times(only 3 months late), but after much toil we now offer a comprehensive range of home brew supplies. We always envisaged adding this element to complement our current products, a lot of similarities exist in the processes used in home brewing, salami making etc and it was a natural progression, especially considering the lack of these products available locally. We have worked hard to ensure we offer a very solid core range of products for beer, spirit & wine making(seasonal) enthusiasts, anyone new to brewing is encouraged to come in and take […]
