The Dexter S5288 08230 cleaver is ideal for cutting through thick slabs of meat and cartilage in grocery stores, butcher shops, and commercial kitchens. A hole in the blade allows the user to hang the knife on a meat hook or butcher's belt. Since it has a DEXSTEEL™ blade construction, the knife's high-carbon steel will not easily stain or corrode. The edge is flexible since it has been ground and honed, and the blade is connected to the handle with brass compression rivets. The Dexter S5288 08230 cleaver's handle is made of rosewood for a pleasing aesthetic.

"Not only are Cleavers useful for cutting a whole Chicken into parts as you like them but very useful when opening up hard shell items, such as Coconuts, in a matter of minutes. A Cleaver having the Extra weight, it makes these jobs Much easier to complete. Seriously consider making a Cleaver a Full Time Tool in your Kitchen."

I never thought that I would find one like it- EVER! I can't say enough about it. And, the price is so good. Thank you, KaTom!"
