LamsonSharp Silver Forged 5.25-inch Meat Cleaver
The LamsonSharp Silver Forged 5.25-inch Meat Cleaver is a a great knife because it's easy to use, even if you've never wielded a cleaver before. The blade is a short 5.25 inches long, and the entire knife is quite lightweight, which makes it ideal for home cooks who are just learning to use cleavers, and for those who lack the upper body strength to safely manage a heavier knife. Though this cleaver is light, it is just as strong as the other knives on this list, and can cut through thick bones with ease. This blade also won't cause delicate chicken bones to splinter the way that some cleavers can.
