>(anyone have any clever slicing tips?)

Well I have but two methods I use to slice my loaves from my 1 lb box..

1: I have a "Fiddlebow" bread knife.  This is a special knife  Well I'll draw

 ===================================    <--Handel part
              I____________________I    <--Blade part

This is viewed from the cuttting edge and is not to scale

As you can see the blade forms a "Bow" like a fiddle bow.  With the wood handel
Since the blade and the handel are PARRELLEL (not "In line" as is "normal")
the handel forms a sliceing guide.  I get rather good results with this.

2:  I use a "Meat Slicer".  Mine is a "Hand crank" unit I got at a used 
store for a good price but it's the good old "Spinning wheel" type slicer
like the stores use to slice cheese and lunchmeat.  Works well for bread

And I love fresh bread :)
