    F6D24EF0-6ABF-4185-9759-680C9492BE4A.jpeg Just got it recently. Amazing. Rubber grip is dishwasher safe, German 4116 steel, mirror polished, shaved hair off my arm, weighs 23-oz, and slightly curved edge allows rocking motion over the food. It was not expensive at all.

    It’s so good I donated today my Chicago Cutlery and my Ontario Knife cleavers to Goodwill.

    That is all. (Smile)

    The dollar bill is a nice touch.

    I've done a lot of work with different cleavers. If you're cutting up a number of chickens there's no better tool. Excuse me I'm off to find that cleaver, just beautiful!

    It looks to be a Scandi grind edge. Very cool for the price point. I’m happy to have it.

    I've been in and around kitchens (mostly non-commercial) for 50 years and have never used a cleaver except for the carbon steel Chinese type. I can't think of a use for one unless you're breaking down whole animal sections. They do look cool though.

    The thin light ones used in Asia are great for chopping vegetables and the like. Big heavy bastards are good for meat processing. I use mine to chop up large cooked pieces of BBQ and breaking off new chunks from the log of butter for the dish.

    I processed an elk with a friend who was an artist with a cleaver. He and his dad went back and forth (playfully) about using a cleaver instead of a smaller knife.

    Cleaver's a great tool when used correctly. It's actually too much club for me, but I've seen it used magically. :cowboy:

    How much was it?

    I acquired a french Sabatier originally had a $79 sticker on it, practically unused...for a buck. 1$. Someones yard/moving sale. Nice, shiny and stainless, full tang. Excellent edge.

    I should post a pic with a dollar next to it because thats what it cost.

    I can't help but think about the street fight scene form Big Trouble in Little China any time meat cleavers come up
