    sharp, long and thinn blade (smooth edge not the jaggered one) and cut perpendicular to the fiber, put pressure on the knife when pulling not pushing

    Take a sharp long knife, Hold ham down firmly on chopping board and pressing knife to ham slice down in see saw motion. meaning move the knife forward and backward as you slice.

    But most impt of all, safety first, you are not a professional so it is okay if the slices are not even or consistant. Just dont add bits of your finger.

    You bought from Cold Storage and they don't provide cutting service? I don't believe it. Cold Storage is the premium supplier for meats, and they don't even have a meat slicer?

    once you cut, the meat will dry up fast.

    use a carving knife to cut lor. but make sure your fingers stay away from the blade lah. practise makes perfect. i've almost perfected my ham slicing after two years of uneven cuts

    i would recommend considering the spiral cutting technique for a superb presentation
    google search for what it is all about.
    look around to see if any one might provide such a service

    Actually, if the ham is meant for a X'mas dinner, it would be better leave the whole ham uncut on the dinning table and only cut out the portions when you want to serve. Just cut out the portion you or your family/guests want and serve directly. You don't need to cut evenly.
