Simmons initially introduced the B-3 blade as an alternative to the SimCut Butcher blade, specializing in cutting boneless meats. However, the blade proved to be effective at cutting more than just meat.
The B-3 blade’s convex profile and hardened cutting edge provides an aggressive slice through soft product applications without creating dust or leaving ragged edges. It is especially effective at cutting fibrous material, as opposed to other blades that may tear or pull on the product being cut. Users typically report less dust, excellent product penetration, and an increase in material yield (particularly in boneless meat cutting applications).
Mini B-3 Blades
The Mini B-3 blade was developed to replace Knife Edge blades in boneless meat cutting applications. Available in both welded band and cut-to-length form, the Mini B-3 eliminates the need for resharpening and is perfect for slicing boneless meats and other reciprocating applications. For further convenience, it is available in both carbon and stainless steel.
Recommended cutting applications for B-3 blades:
- Boneless meats
- All foam types
- Non-woven materials
Consistently delivering high-quality blades has been key to Simmons’ success throughout the years. As part of our reliable welds guarantee, if a Simmons blade breaks at the weld, just let us know and we’ll replace that blade for you.
We stand behind our workmanship, and even when we’re not at fault for blade issues, we frequently invest in analyzing the cause of the blade’s failure in order to educate our customers and help them correct the source of the issue in their facility.
B-3 blades are only available in Single Edge Double Bevel (BDB) form.

In order to further extend the life of B-3 blades, we’ve made hardening the cutting edge of the blade a standard part of the production process.
*Does not apply to double edge blades.*
Pitch is the distance from point to point. Standard B-3 blades have a ¾” pitch, but we also offer a ¼” pitch. Standard Mini B-3 blades have a ¼" pitch.
