Place to procure a meat cleaver:

Fein Brothers

Fein Brothers has been supplying restaurants and individuals with all their culinary preparation needs since 1929. “We go into a vacant building, and when we leave, there’s a restaurant there,” says Fein Brothers Vice President Gil Minkin. Impressive, but say you just want an awesome meat cleaver? No problem. The company headquarters at 2007 N. Martin Luther King Drive in Milwaukee features more than 50,000 items in its massive showroom - easily the largest in the Midwest, Minkin says. Customers can choose from meat cleavers ranging in price from $16.80 to $100.

If it were an amusement park, it would be called “Cleaveland.”
