A big, heavy, sharp knife. Designed to slash through thick raw meat. It can also crack bones easily. Mostly used by butchers. — In-game description

The Cleaver is bladed melee weapon in DayZ.

The Cleaver is a large, one-handed, square-shaped knife. It is typically found in residential areas and among early players seeking a bladed tool for basic tasks, mainly defense. In this regard, the Cleaver preforms at an average pace but lags behind in attack time.

The Cleaver consumes more inventory spaces than other knives like the Kitchen Knife or Steak Knife while providing much of the same characteristics, and as a result it is often discarded by players when more suitable options become available.
