Our pelletizing blades are used worldwide. Pelletizing knives are used to do exactly what their name says- slice objects into small pieces or pellets. Pelletizing knives come in different levels of hardness and are made of different materials depending on your needs. Our years of experience with these blades have earned us our reputation for high-quality pelletizer knives. Our knives provide a clean cut, and they prevent breakage. If you’re unsure what material or hardness level is necessary for your needs, one of our customer service reps can help you figure out which pelletizer knives will work best for your needs.
