Top Rated Cleavers

Whether you need to break down a whole duck or chop a heap of vegetables for a crudite tray, our customers' cleaver reviews tell us--and we agree--these are the best cleavers and cleaver-like knives to get the job done.

Effortlessly cutting through bones and joints, meat cleavers are an essential part of the home cook's kitchen. Not only will they help you butcher poultry or meat with ease, but you can simply turn the wide, flat blade to the side and use the spine as a mallet to tenderize meat in order to break down tough connective tissues for a more tender, juicy result. Prepping a beautiful and delicious array of fruits and vegetables is a cinch with the help of a vegetable cleaver. The long, wide blade helps prevent cucumber and carrot rounds from rolling off the blade and the solid construction can easily penetrate the toughest gourds and root veggies. These vegetable knives also assist with plating, since the flat blade acts as a spatula for easy transfer from cutting board to serving platter, leaving less to clean up. Feel confident tackling whole poultry, big cuts of meat or an abundance of vegetables with our collection of top-rated cleavers.
