These are small little knives that fit on your finger, and they are used to quickly cut butchers twine and casings through production. They come in many sizes, and can be worn on any finger of preference. For use with sausages we have found it works easiest if placed on your pinky finger or ring finger. The knife is also compliant to be used in food preparation, and the blade is made from a hardened stainless steel. This make will resist corrosion and stay sharp. You will be surprised just how much time using this knife saves as well. Think, you no longer have to stop, grab a knife, cut the string, cut the casing… That task over a lot of production adds up, and with this twine knife it truly speeds up your skill.
Remember, when sizing the right ring for you they start at what may seem like bigger sizes due to them being designed to be worn over gloves. If you work in a USDA facility, for example, and wear warm gloves under your nitrile you may want to get a large diameter ring to fit over the gloves.
Please refer to the sizing table and chart below to find out what would be best for you.
Each needle is hand-made, and very unique. Every needle has natural variation, but is functionally made the same.
This is a fragile product!
Do NOT insert the needle too hard or you risk breaking the bone. Given the nature of this product it is non-refundable, and if you break the needle by getting it stuck on dried skin from inserting the needle to far...
It is advised by the Consorzio NOT to wash the needle heavily, but to quickly sanitize as they can soak up aroma easily.
Do NOT wash in the washing machine after use!
