Thread: Bone saw and meat cleaver

    Bone saw and meat cleaver

    Need to get myself a new bone saw and heavy cleaver for butchering my deer / lambs.

    Saw is for legs / spine as well as breast bone so heavier duty one would be better.

    Cleaver is similarly for leg bones and spine so again a bit of weight would be good.

    Looking to spend max 40 per item.

    Any suggestions?

    Just get a decent saw mate and forget the cleaver!
    Scobies do a great one here:
    Deer bones splinter badly if cleavered. The saw is so much better, safer and neater. My cleaver never gets used now. They also do some wicked poultry shears which make a neater job on the rib bones than the saw. They will do up to Roe size deer without too much bother.

    I'm curious what you guys use the heavy artillery for?

    I get by with just a small boning knife for disassembling an entire deer carcass!

    Is it for doing chops etc?

    Yes, im doing lamb for someone and they want lamb chops and barnsley chops, so I usually use a cleaver.

    Yes the advantage with using the cleaver over the saw when creating venison chops is no bone dust to clear up.
    Otherwise (like CSL) all i use is a boning knife, and sometimes a steak knife.
    Scobies is the place to go as already stated.

    I didnt get a pm, John no.

    In the end I have bought my saw, cleaver and a couple of other useful larder items from Samuel Staniforth Ltd the prices seem really good and delivery is next day. They were also very helpful on the telephone.

    Saw and knives all arrived today, sharp as hell and all seem really good weight and quality.
    I would recommend this company to any other people looking to buy something similar.
