10" cleaver!!! I love it! it is just what I was looking for, I am a farmer who prepares a few lambs and pigs each month. I have been using a smaller 6" cleaver for cutting chops which can be hard work and dangerous! but with this fantastic piece of equipment it makes cutting them a doddle. it has plenty of weight so it does the cutting for you all you have to do is concentrate on were you are putting it.The blade is a good 10" and the handle about 8" so you get plenty of swing. it also has a solid plastic handle so is easy to clean.
This cleaver is a must have item for professional butchers and part timers!!

This monster of a cleaver has no problem cutting though any meat bone or anything put in front of it. Their is no effort in using it because the weight of the blade is quite heavy you can just use the blade. The best thing about it though is it looks comical hanging on the wall in the kitchen with the other cutlery because it is such a beast, love using this product I am shore this cleaver will give many years of service if you are looking to buy this you will not be disappointed.

I ordered this item to replace a heavy butcher's cleaver which broke on Christmas Eve eve (23rd December) - the handle came off. I made the order on Amazon at around 2.30pm on the first "working" day after Christmas (I put that in inverted commas because the custom with many companies is to shut down between Christmas and New Year) not expecting to see any sign of the cleaver until the New Year. So I was pleasantly surprised to be notified that evening with the message that the cleaver had been dispatched by standard delivery that very day - expected arrival in the new year. I was even more surprised to receive the product - carefully and safely packed in stiff cardboard - the following day; roughly twenty-four hours from order to arrival and between Christmas and New Year to boot! Hats off to the company and Royal Mail! As for the product: it was just what I was looking for. Namely something with a bit of weight to it that could hack through pigs' bones for soups and stocks. The handle is securely attached to the blade, unlike the flimsily-attached previous cleavers I had, and the blade is sharp enough to handle more delicate tasks as the need arises. I cannot recommend the product and the level of service displayed by the company more highly. I am sure the cleaver will last me a lifetime (though I am at the age where I am closer to death than birth, but that is by the by; I am sure you know what I mean).

I've been looking for a good quality heavy cleaver for some time, but could only find the small flimsy things sold in cookshops. Even the ones from well known brands just were not up to the job of butchering our own pigs and chickens. Ordered this Friday lunchtime and it was delivered the next day! Can't ask for better service than that.
It arrived very well packaged and I used it immediately on some chickens. The cleaver is a substantial tool - just the weight I wanted: heavy enough to do the job, but not too heavy to use for any length of time. Needless to say, it cut the chicken effortlessly (straight out of the packaging) due to the sharpness of the blade and the weight of the cleaver.
I'm glad I purchased it - its well worth the money.
