    I want to buy a cleaver, not an expat one since it will be exclusively for kitchen use. Hoping to find something for 300 or less and I was hoping to use a smaller knife maker not something like shun or wusthoff. Thanks.

    check out the stuff by Daado over on bladeforums or Instagram. Good forged cleavers at great prices. I have a 1/8" one coming soon

    Victorinox it is what every professional line chef I know uses, but the serious question is why can’t you use an expat cleaver exclusively in the kitchen?

    I have the Old Hickory cleaver. It’s great and takes on a sweet patina!

    I was thinking old Hickory or Dexter Russell, unless it needs to be pretty.
