Cutting Edge only supply the highest quality equipment in the industry and carefully hand pick the best manufactures for each and every product across the meat processing industry. When it comes to meat breaking saws, Schmid and Wezel are the very best.

Founded in 1919, Schmid and Wezel have been producing world class and unique hand tools for over 90 years. In the thirties, Schmid and Wezel created the EFA range of slaughtering and butchery tools starting with a mobile beef carcass de-hider that was used by the German army in the field to de-hide cattle quickly and effectively to feed the troops! EFA's de-hiders today are state of the art and unique in design. 

Today the ISO9001 EFA factory is a state of the art, highly invested, modern manufacturing business with quality and customer support woven into the fabric of the factory and its people. This has enabled them to produce a modern range of breaking saws, scribe saws, carcass splitters, carcass bandsaw splitters, cutters, clippers, de-hiders and hand held skinners that are unequalled in quality and durability wihin the food processing industry. A fact that many UK and Irish meat industry personnel will remember from when EFA was a popular choice here in the UK and Ireland over 20 years ago – in fact much of this equipment is still in use!

Both electric and air powered units are available in a range of blade sizes and configurations to suit different applications.

Lightweight and heavy-duty models are available for;

  • Scribing - primal cutting and rib removal
  • Breaking - quartering of carcasses
  • Trimming - cutting bone to make trimming to specification easier

Let our dedicated and specialist hand tools team show you how EFA can reduce costs, increase yield and maximise efficiency in your business.
