Butcher's knives are some of the most traditional types of knives still used today. Although the range of knives that are considered as butcher's knives has expanded since then, the traditional shape is still very much a common tool for the butcher. With a larger blade, these knives are perfect for cutting, stripping and splitting meat. From this knifes design, the French chef's knife was born (which is now used for more of a general purpose than just for meat.)
Slicers, cleavers and tenderisers are now additional tools used by butchers to create the range of products that is consumed today. The meat cleaver is the most recognisable butcher's knives of all, with its large rectangular blade. A meat cleaver is used to cut through bone, however, the broad side of the blade is often found to be useful in crushing foods such as garlic. Cleavers are incredibly tough as they have to withstand repeated blows.
