"Expandette" Removable Bottom Knife

Expando bottom cutting anvil with Expandette disposable cutting ring from Mario Cotta.

The "Expandette" cutting ring uses a patented design to allow easy change of the cutting ring without removing the anvil from the shaft.


The ring makes it possible to keep the cutting edge sharp and in good condition, without the time consuming aggravation of removing the shaft and anvils, replacing the shaft, and then resetting the sharpened anvils in their proper location. With the Expandette, everything stays in place except the cutting ring, which can be changed quickly.


Sharpening of the cutting knife is no longer required. Once both sides of the cutting ring have been used, it can be easily replaced with a new ring which significantly reduces maintenance down-time.
