Frozen Krill and Blackworms

Just purchased some frozen krill and blackworms. I am currently spending a considerable amount of time chopping these foods up (after defrosting)with a razor blade for feeding my smaller fish.

Anybody have any ideas on how to chop these into little pieces?

Not sure a blender would work plus the wife would get pissed off if I used her blender for fish food. I also tried smashing the frozen pieces with a hammer. That got the pieces smaller but still not small enough.

20 Gallon--Ember Tetras/Orange Shrimp
10 Gallon--Chili Rasboras/Cherry Red Shrimp

Try running the frozen block on a cheese grater You can usually pick one up cheap so you don't have to upset the wife using her kitchen tools

curious why you have to chop them up? unless your feeding micro fish most fish are able to gobble the frozen worms pretty easily once defrosted.
