Description Meat Cleavers are quite good for cutting small bones. But sometimes you have to dismember a very large (killed) monster. Most of them would not let you use the S.K. while they are still awake. I would not advice to use it on wood, because the teeth might get blunt too fast. Spare it for bony monster removal. Or the first break through leathery skin. It is really good for cutting pizza and bread as well.
