I had been eyeing this cleaver for about six months, and received it as a gift about a month ago. I researched all the cleavers and found that this was the best rated, even by Cook's Illustrated (no paid ads, no conflicts of interest). It makes short work of chicken backs, which will yield a super rich broth, provided your cleaver is up to the task of thoroughly whacking them. I love the one-piece design, which makes it super easy to clean. It is perfectly balanced and feels good in the hand. I have been keeping the edge honed with the Global Mino-sharp III. I don't think that I will ever have to replace this cleaver.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Weight
