ZWILLING J.A. Henckels Four Star 6-inch Meat Cleaver is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm writing this review after watching my husband go to town on the ribs he wanted to smoke. It scared me a bit but he had always wanted a meat cleaver so this is the one that was recommended. First of all... IT IS HEAVY, but I think that's the point, it has cut thru chicken bones like they were styrofoam, and judging by the smile on his face did some serious work on those rib bones. The Four star knives have always been the best , this has now been added to the collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from proven line This is a tried and true line for last 40 years!! The 6" cleaver is an user friendly. Not too heavy to hold and the handle is smooth and comfortable. I like using this cleaver when I need to crush a lot of garlic and ginger for recipes. It is an obvious choice for hacking through bone , but also thin and maneuverable for slices large quantities of vegetable and meats. Approachable, easy to handle . Fits nicely in my butcher block!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This great cleaver can chop through a chicken bone with the greatest of ease. It makes breaking down a chicken a simple, quick process. It has a lighter handle so it's not too heavy to use chopping larger vegetables, like cabbage or a hard squash. Four Star is forged from high carbon German steel and made in Germany just like Pro so you get incredible sharpness, great edge retention and a knife that's going to last a lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from useful tool I enjoy having the right tools for the kitchen job so I'm glad I have my cleaver for those times I want to cut up a chicken or chop larger cuts of meat. It also has come in handy for melons and harder vegetables like squash. Because it is forged it feel sturdy using it for these hefty cutting tasks. Like all Four Star knives this one will retain its sharp edge longer than other knives due to the high quality steel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect size and weight I am very pleased with this cleaver. Too many cleavers rely on size and weight to force their way through bone and meat. This one relies on quality of material. The forged German blade is sharpened to the perfect angle. The quality of the steel keeps it sharp for a long time and is easy to maintain. The handle is very comfortable and the texture gives me confident in my grip while using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cleaver This cleaver is not as daunting in size, but still gets the job done of cutting through big pieces of meat, produce with little effort needed. With the Four Star, this is a little bit lighter of a knife in the handle, providing a nice weight to it. Also with the Sigmaforge aspect of the knife, this is a sturdy and durable cleaver. A great addition to any kitchen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cleaver can get through meat, bone, tendons, really anything. It is made from German Special Formula Steel, also forged from one piece of steel so durable for a lifetime. It is also ice hardened so blade will stay sharper for a longer period. The handle is comfortable and lightweight, a nice option compared to other heavy handle knives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now that's a cleaver In researching cleavers, I found one difference to be forged vs. stamped. A forged cleaver has a bolster, or a noticeable piece of steel between the blade and the handle. It's surprising how much weight that adds to the cleaver. And if you're using the cleaver to break down chicken or other large tasks, that extra weight can be helpful.

I have a 9 piece block bought in 1998. Is this what belongs in the empty space on the top row of my block?

Asked by: Janis
The cleaver fits in the slot on the top left of the block.
