Robust, effective and safe
The cleaver is easy to recognize thanks to its
characteristic shape. Typical is the thick cutting blade with a robust grind
that easily penetrates meat and bones. Unlike many other knife models, the
blade is sturdy rather than sharp. The weight of the cleaver is comparatively
high, which allows for a sweeping blow and easy cutting. The comparatively long
handle always lies securely and comfortably in the hand.

A cleaver is suitable for this purpose
You need a chopper if you want to prepare whole animals
fresh and cut meat in one piece for this purpose, including very hard
structures (cartilage and bones). Large pieces of meat or ribs and chops, for
example, can be quickly and safely cut into the desired shape with one stroke
of the chopping knife. Even cutting up poultry such as chicken, turkey, goose
or duck works easily with a cleaver.
The cleaver in use
Unlike a classic kitchen knife, you don't cut meat with the
cleaver by moving it back and forth. With the chopper, you guide the blade in a
sweeping motion from above onto the cutting material. The application is
similar to that of a cleaver. Because of its rough use, the chipper is often
used in the meat processing industry as well as in food service operations.
It is important that you work with the necessary momentum
and do not proceed too tentatively. Always ensure your safety when using the
chopper to cut up meat.

Proper care and sharpening of the chipper
To ensure that your chipper lasts a long time, good care is
important. After use, depending on the degree of soiling, rinsing with clear
water or rubbing with a soft sponge is sufficient. Carefully polish the cleaver
dry after cleaning to prevent water spots from forming. For all models with a
wooden handle, we recommend oiling with Swedish linseed oil. This will quickly
restore the shine to the handle.
Precise sharpness is less important for a cleaver. The
blade is very robust and can be used for a long time. However, with frequent
use, small nicks sometimes form even on choppers and should be removed. If you
notice that the application becomes more difficult, a regrinding of the blade
is recommended. Feel free to use our free, professional sharpening
service for this at any time by simply sending us the chopper and
getting it back freshly sharpened. Classic sharpening
accessories are not suitable for refurbishing chippers.
