Utopia 7 Inch Stainless Steel Cleaver

This may be the best sub $20 cleaver on the market. It even outperforms some cleavers in the $30-$40 range, so if you are in looking  for a low price-point cleaver that can handle the tough jobs like cutting through thick pieces of meat and bone with ease the Utopia 7 inch Kitchen Cleaver may be just what you need.

The handle is comfortable even after being used for relatively long periods of time, but it can get a little slippery if it gets wet, so it is best to keep your hands and cleaver handle dry.  The blade has some heft to it which is nice for cutting through meat and small bones which is where the Utopia cleaver really separates itself from the other cleavers at this price point. It handles the tough jobs much better than any of other budget cleavers.

There is of course always a downside when buying cheaper cutlery, and this product is no exception. It doesn’t ship with the sharpest possible edge, so it will need a bit of sharpening to get it to perform at it’s optimum level. Another problem is that it ships with a blade guard but no sheath.

Overall is a good cleaver at a great price that can handle the tough food prep jobs and last for years.
