The beef or game meat is hung up in a cooler box with ventilation holes, so as to dry the meat out (not completely dry) & then it is cut in thin strips for eating. I can assure you that there is not one South African that has eaten Biltong & not liked it --- Lekker!
This is a SA saying that describes it as being great.

I am adding some pics of some of the Biltong cutters that I have made & if any one out there is interested in them I could send more details in the manufacturing of them.
Firstly sorry for the delay in answering al your question. I have been busy with a few other projects. I have added a couple of photos with descriptions of the item in a break down form for easy identification. The steel that I use is a stainless steel 316, which is hard enough for the use on my biltong cutter that I make. I have the blades profiled cut & then I chamfer the edge on a small milling machine & then hollow grind the edge to razor sharp & finish off by polishing the blade on my "spindle sander" 600 grit. If there are any questions on my pics. please don't hesitate to ask

It has been awhile since you posted this, Ronnie , I must have missed it. Great pictures/Drawings. What kind of meat do they use there, beef?

I know it has been 3 years since I posted - Biltong (USA it is called Jerky)
Not making any excuses. I am now back in doing what I love best & that is doing woodwork. If there is any woodworker out there that is interested in my Power Point presentation on how I make my biltong cutters then you can contact me at
[email protected] & I will email you my presentation.
The steel that I use is profiled 316 stainless steel. I cut the edge on a small milling machine & then as shown in my presentation I grind the finished edge to the sharpness of a planer blade. One can also use planer blades I changed because they just became to expensive for me to use & hence the 316 stainless steel.

No Biltong is not tough that you need a cutter, it is normally cut with a sharp pocket knife. When you want to cut larger quantities a cutter is used, or for those whom are scared of cutting their fingers with a knife.
