Wusthof Classic Cleavers

Perfect for breaking down larger cuts of meat, this heavy German cleaver is designed to cut through bone. Its finely honed high-carbon-steel blade works equally well for chopping and mincing tough vegetables. Knife is precision forged from a single piece of sturdy high-carbon steel that resists stains and corrosion. Heavy razor-sharp blade is designed for both heavy-duty and precision cutting. Wusthof's Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) ensures a 20% sharper blade with twice the edge retention. Full tang is triple riveted to the handle for exceptional durability. Polypropylene handle is contoured for a comfortable grip. 6"-long blade, 5 1/4"-long handle; 1 lb. 4 oz. Made in Germany.

Don't like it at all
November 27, 2015
I purchased this cleaver online after reading the reviews to replace one that I had for 30 years; used it for the first time while preparing Thanksgiving dinner. The cleaver has a curved edge and does not cut straight down but flares out sideways. I found it difficult to handle and couldn't even get it to cut through sweet potatoes. It is very awkward to use and I am returning it; I won't buy another online as the feel of the cleaver makes a huge difference.
Cons: Difficult to Use

Excellent Cleaver!
June 18, 2013
Wusthof has made an excellent knife - it has great weight to it which helps cutting through beef bones! I feed my dog raw meat, so this is a perfect purchase for cutting up big slabs of beef. I haven't used it on veggies yet. I'm sure it would be spectacular.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Strength, Weight
Cons: Difficult to Store
