ZWILLING Gourmet 6-inch Meat Cleaver is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cleaver is a quality knife made in Germany with specially formulated steel but it is stamped instead of forged so in addition to a more competitive price point it is a bit lighter than a forged knife which many home chefs enjoy. A cleaver was designed to be used on meat but is also good for hard vegetables such as squash. Not just for cutting up bone in meat it is also good for cubing or mincing meat. The large surface area is useful for scooping up chopped items and the flat side can be used to smash items such as lemongrass or garlic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Gourmet I think this is such a great line of knives. It's perfect for someone who wants the quality of a knife made from high carbon German steel and made in Germany. A knife that has the durable three rivet handle but doesn't want to the weight or price of a forged knife. This is a stamped knife so it is a lighter than a forged knife. For me, this is particularly helpful with a cleaver that is heavy by design. I feel much more comfortable handling this and it's still sharp and thick enough to chop through any meat or bones with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Gourmet 6" cleaver is perfect for the home chef. Nice compact design makes it easy to handle, and less intimidating than some of the larger cleavers available. Hacks through bones, and dices and slices tons of vegetables in no time. Love that it is made in Germany, from high carbon steel which means that it is well constructed and will last a long time. Great investment, looking forward to many years of use. Zwilling makes the only knives I use in my kitchen because I know they are built to last.

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 Zwilling knives have always been the bes, this has now been added to the collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great Cleaver This knife is so big, which is great if you are really chopping up a lot of produce or cutting large pieces of meat. The handle on this knife is comfortable and has a good grip for handling such a large blade. Even though it’s stamped, because the steel has been ice hardened, it’s a superior stamped knife that will be more durable and sharper in comparison to other stamped cleavers. Looks a lot like the forged Zwilling Pro knives, but at a much nicer price point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes quick work of meats and bones. This is a very good meat cleaver for home cooking. Excellent for breaking down chickens, smaller pork and lamb bones. It isn't a full on butchery knife but for home use, and restaurant prep work, I like it a lot. It holds an edge and is heavy enough to give a little help when I am cutting through bones. Its lightness, and relative thinness, makes it good for meal prep. The Gourmet line is a very good line of stamped knives. They are manufactured under tight controls and precise standards at Zwilling’s factory in Solingen, Germany. They have a full tang, running from the tip to the heel of the handle making these knives sturdy and stable. The comfortable handle is solid without being heavy. Because the composition of the steel, these knives will stay sharp and responsive with every cut. Dishwasher safe, but hand wash to keep it looking new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from chop chop This is the perfect cleaver. Too many cleavers are heavy and rely on that weight to cut through. This one relies on the quality of the blade. The German steel and construction produce a strong sharp blade that is easy to maintain. The handle is comfortable and gives me confidence when using it. I love the traditional three rivet design with the Zwilling logo on the center rivet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from crushes garlic!! When a recipe calls for crushed garlic...pull this one out of your block. I also use it for slicing ginger and other tough skinned vegetables! Easy to handle. the 6 inch blade is user friendly and fairly light weight for the type of production it will help yield. My butcher block has a spaced designed for this cleaver. I use it!!!

Which cleavers can be used for meat and bones. The description does not say this can't be used for meat, but a sticker inside says "this Chinese knife is designed for vegetables . . . Do NOT use to chop meat or bones or delicate blade may break" what?!
