Damascus Meat Cleaver/Chopper
A cleaver is a heavy, ax-like knife that has been used for about the past one million years to cut through meat and animal bone. In modern times, it is generally made of carbon steel or iron and employed as a requisite tool for a butcher and a common kitchen implement. Its high-end use and versatility are truly exemplified by Chinese-style cooking. Here it has a great utility in every step of food preparation, from slicing vegetables, chopping firewood, and whittling chopsticks to butchering meat. Moreover, its flat surface is useful, like a mallet, to pound and tenderize tough meatloaves. In addition to an all-purpose broad blade cleaver, you can also find a standard, narrow-bladed, lighter cleaver used for gentle slicing. The meat cleaver, also known as the western cleaver, features a thick blade that is not very sharp. It is meant for heavy-duty use like splitting bones; it does not require a very sharp edge.
For what purposes are meat cleavers used?
The large knife that varies in its shape resembles a rectangular-bladed hatchet. It is widely used as a butcher knife or a kitchen knife to slash through bone. Its broadside can be employed to crush small ingredients like garlic. The bold and sturdy meat cleaver or the bone chopper stands as the largest yet heaviest of the kitchen knives. It is designed in such a classic shape that it is great to break down meat, hacking through small to medium bones and connective tissues.

Damascus Care Tips
Before using the best Damascus meat cleaver, you should understand some tips to ensure maximum safety of your exquisite tool:
- Keep your Damascus clean and free of humid environments. The classy Damascus blades need more attention because of their higher carbon content that is at higher risk of corrosion. So, it is better to clean the blade immediately after use or if it has come into contact with moisture.
- Spot cleaning the rust is a great option if your knife has been exposed to humidity. The best way is to spot clean the blade using a soft scrub.
- Protecting the pattern from fading is an essential job to do when dealing with Damascus steel blades. Apply a high-quality oil or a small amount of WD-40 when the blade is dry. It will help to protect the blade against moisture and fading. Damascus is chemically fused with stainless steel and other softer metals; therefore, you do not need to worry about flaking or chipping.
- Maintain the sharp cutting edge of your Damascus steel blade. Damascus steel will maintain its edge for quite a long time, but it will eventually get dull if used consistently. So, it is highly recommended to maintain its edge with the Spyderco Triangle Sharpmaker.
