I have a couple of cleavers. A Chinese cleaver, which stays in a drawer mostly, and a small but heavy, thick French meat cleaver, which lays flat on top of my knife block very nicely. I have a nice, thick, end-cut maple butcher's block, maybe 14"x20", that has little feet. I think I might make a holder on the underside of that. If that happens, I will probably promote the Chinese cleaver to the top of the knife block.

GB... mine sits in a drawer. Not the best place for it, but have no place else to put the thing! I do make sure that there is nothing around the blade, that the balde will not come in contact with anything.

I have a French Feuille de Boucher made by D'Eglon (If you've ver seen the movie "Delicatessan" you'll know what style of cleaver it is).

It lives in my knife roll, which I had to specially reinforce to carry the 2 pounds of bone crushing goodness. For some odd reason my co-workers refer to it as my serial killer knife.

I keep most all cutting tools in sheaths, typically made from paper milk carton material, in a couple of kitchen drawers.

I think Buck came up with a great idea, Katie. I just ordered a knife and ordered a couple plastic sheaths for the blade. If I run into a plastic blind somewhere I'm going to snatch it up for future use. I'm thinking if you put two pieces of the blind like this )( and taped together the ends and the bottom so they looked like this || , then you could slip the blade in from the top and the blind would pinch it. Is that how Buck made your guys'?

The hole on the end of the cleaver. You hang it on a hook.

Mine does not have a hole. Even if it did, with little kid fingers around here I would not want any exposed blades.

If you don't have one already, get a universal blade sheath. Then you can just store it in a drawer.
