Wusthof Meat Cleaver, 9", 1100 g The largest, heaviest and most heavy-duty cleaver that Wusthof makes! These old-school German knive companies know their meat, so this is a serious tool. Extra large, heavy and heavy-duty straight-edge butcher-style meat cleaver. A good value, with plenty of length and extra weight (1100 grams) and a nice thick blade to provide the strength needed for serious butchery. Honestly, this is a massive knife... in my opinion probably too big for most home users. If you're raising your own livestock or are a professional you might have use for this, otherwise if you're looking for something for home use, I'd definitely recommend going with one of the smaller cleavers.
Note: cleavers are NOT meant for wielding like an axe and hammering through large bones, that's what saws are for.
