When we buy a cleaver for game day butchering, we want it to (easily) be able to break down the whole hog—and (just as important) make us look like a pro while we do it. For that, you’ll need a heavy cleaver that can hold a sharp edge. This Gladiator Cleaver meets our need (and even if you botch the job, you’ll still look amazing holding this [not so] little baby). Forged and built by hand, the cleaver is not only durable but might just be the most masculine knife in your entire set. Even better, it won’t break the bank either, which comes into play when you are feeding an army of hungry tailgaters or homegaters.


  • Perfect BBQ cleaver features a heavy blade, single piece of steel through the handle and an ergonomic grip.
  • Beautiful Damascus steel is hand-forged by Gladiators Guild.


  • This cleaver can rust if you don’t take the proper precautions. To prevent rust, be sure to dry the cleaver well and apply vegetable oil after each use.
  • However beautiful, Damascus knives are more fragile than solid steel. Handle with care.

Grab it on Amazon now for about $30.
