If you are looking for a chopping machine, look no further. This is a classic meat cleaver meat for chopping things like bone, melons, or large crustaceans. Don't plan on using this to thin slice kohlrabi, dice an onion or anything like that, it might be able to do it, but it would be tiring. It came very sharp but not sharp enough to shave arm hair (which it doesn't need to be) and there were a few small nicks along the blade. The blade is super thick and has a nice curve to it unlike the thin Asian cleavers which are more meant to be used as chefs knives.
I cant wait to use this to halve some dungeness crabs or split a chicken bone in chicken breast.
Edit 9/6/2016: I have since used this to chop some rock crabs in half and it worked like a charm. I also put it to the test by chopping the fins off of about 30 albacore tuna collars. These fins are very tough and you cannot slice though the spines in the fins with a knife. It sometimes took two swings but this cleaver was able to get the job done just fine. A lighter cleaver would have had a difficult time.
I bought this for chopping up turkey necks and chicken backs so I can feed them into a meat grinder for homemade dog food. One hack and a turkey neck is sliced in half. It's very slick. And I have also found it handy for chopping up meat that I was going to use in recipes - mincing meat for chili, for instance.
Again, it's a huge and serious tool so be warned. I wouldn't use it with kids or pets around, just in case. And you will want to wear an apron!
