TGW International Launches New and Improved Seafood Blade Range

The key difference maker is a new corrosion resistant proprietary process step for the company’s line of seafood blades.

TGW International, part of the EDGE Industrial Technologies group, is introducing the company’s new and improved seafood blade range, which features industry-leading corrosion resistance.

TGW specializes in high-quality, stainless-steel, rust-resistant seafood processing blades and knives for all saltwater fish, freshwater fish, and shellfish cutting and packaging operations–both offshore and land-based. These knives aid with filleting, skinning, heading, and slicing.  The company also produces frozen cutters, shrimp deveiners, and crab leg cutters.

“With over 100 years of craftsmanship and experience, we are well-versed to handle complex assignments,” said Bob Woodbury, CEO of EDGE Industrial Technologies. “We’ve seen knives that are needed in some of the most severe conditions imaginable such as processing the ships’ salt water environment. And now, the new TGW knives can last so much longer.”

The key is an improved corrosion resistance process step for the company’s line of seafood blades. TGW blades provide industry-leading corrosion resistance, even in the toughest of cutting environments. While other blades rust in 24 hours on the processing ships, TGW blades achieved results of well over 100 hours with no corrosion whatsoever.

TGW fish processing knives use the highest quality 300 or 400 Series Stainless Steels available. Per instruction, the company can manufacture using 17-4 PH Stainless as well as M2HSS, carbide materials and other specialty materials.

Seafood Processing Knives

TGW knives are sharp right out of the package. There’s no need to hone the blade edge prior to installing and making cuts—companies can get to work right away. Here are some other benefits:

  • Stay sharper longer:customers can run TGW blades longer between re-sharpening, which means longer overall blade life.
  • Easier to re-sharpen:TGW blades hold their edge better, for faster re-sharpening and less blade material removal, which allows for more re-sharpening before reaching the minimum blade run diameter.
  • Blades run straight and true for the best quality cuts: TGW blades are balanced to run true, time after time – a truer running blade provides better quality cuts, which means less potential waste product.

“We deliver nothing less than the highest quality knives, with superior technical expertise and the best service in the industrial machine knife industry,” Woodbury said.

TGW offers both off-the-shelf and custom knife designs for seafood and other meat processing.
