Meat tenderizing apparatus

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #4086683.

A yieldable knife meat tenderizing apparatus particularly for meat that contains bones and including a plurality of elongated knives each comprising a blade with a sharp meat penetrating and meat severing end and a piston on which a blade is mounted in substantial alignment. In order to provide the force yielding feature the apparatus also includes a transverse lock plate having openings through each of which a piston extends and cooperating friction jam means on the piston and the lock plate member having cooperating surfaces for jam locking each piston on the lock plate when the piston is forced into its opening but releasable by reverse movement under preselected reaction force on each piston created by the resistance to the blade entering the meat.
