This 6-inch professional-grade cleaver is an exceptionally strong, fine tool for chopping through bones and joints in meat. Or, with an eye on versatility, turn it on its side, and crush peppercorns or cloves of garlic. J.A. Henckels has been a knife manufacturer since 1731. The name is synonymous with quality, and this cleaver holds to the company's high standards. It is forged of high-carbon no-stain steel and offers an ice-hardened, laser-controlled edge. While well balanced, it feels heavy, which is a definite benefit in a knife that must hack through tough sinew and bone. Altogether, this is an excellent kitchen tool. --Maria Dolan
The cleaver, a formidable tool, is kind of like an axe for the kitchen. The blade is thick, inflexible, heavy and forwardly weighted. It needs to be tough enough to chop through joints and bones. Don't expect an inferior blade that doesn't extend through the length of the handle to tackle this kind of work. Insist on a quality tool, full tang blade with an ice-hardened forged blade.
