Made iconic by movies and TV shows of the horror genre, the meat cleaver is actually a powerful tool utilised by Butchers' and Butchers' Shop all over the world.
Where a smaller, sharper blade is more useful for intricate cutting and meat preparation, a meat cleaver is more adept at breaking down and cutting through tougher portion of an animal carcass.
Used as a powerful tool for cutting through sinew, bone and cartilage, a cleaver is, therefore, an ideal addition for these power cuts.
When in the right hands, or with a little bit of practise, the meat cleaver will become one of your go-to pieces of prep equipment, especially if separating large portions of meat and with no access to a bandsaw.
For more intricate work we have a fine selection of dedicated Butchers' knives that can be used for a wide variety of tasks.
