So who has and uses a meat cleaver for doing butchery duties, and what is a good brand?

I've just butchered a couple of sheep and it's hard work without a bandsaw so was going to look at a cleaver instead, can't justify the bandsaw. This is mainly for the smaller work I have a hand saw for bigger jobs.

When we were butchering our own sheep about 18 years ago, I invested in a small Bosch reciprocating saw with the longest blade. Great for splitting a hanging carcase.
I had a larger saw but it was too awkward.
Much cheaper than a bandsaw and safer than a cleaver.

Meat cleaver is **** for butchering.

Unless you have to have chops with a handle you can do the hole job with a knife.

Cut out the backstraps and tenderloin, learn to roll the forequarter and your all done.

Our local hardware has a Chinese meat (not wood) bandsaw for about $200. Otherwise I just used to use a hacksaw

I still think the best way to get rid of a body is a towed wood chipper. And 60kilo of lime.

Or we really are talking meat for food?

lol
