A cleaver is designed to cut through meat and bone, this is why they are sometimes refereed to as a meat cleaver. Our Stellar Sabatier cleaver is forged from a single billet of stainless steel and designed for professional-standard weight for balance and safety, it is also dishwasher safe and comes with a Stellar lifetime guarantee.
The cutting edge of a cleaver is often sharply-beveled typically convex. This and the very thick spine and heavy blade enables easy separating of meat and bone. Cleavers are designed to be used in one single quick stroke and should leave a clean straight cut. A cleaver knife usually comes with a hole in the blade so that it can be easily hung from a hook as often they do not fit in knife blocks due to their size and rectangular shape.
