A meat cleaver is a tool used in cooking and a one-handed short blade weapon.

Usage

Cooking

Main article: Cooking

As a cooking utensil it is mostly used for butchering and slicing food.

Weapon

It is a one-handed short blade weapon that deals slash damage, creating holes in clothing. It has a high attack speed compared to other short blade weapons and a low critical chance.

Breaking doors

It is decent at bashing down doors, dealing 20 damage per hit. For comparison, an axe deals 35 damage.

Tree chopping

It is decent at tree chopping, dealing 15 damage per hit, comparable with the Hand Axe. It does not have a cut down tree action so trees need to be attacked.

Condition

The meat cleaver has a maximum condition of 10. Its rate of degradation is influenced by the short blade and maintenance skills. The chance of losing durability can be simplified to the following formula: 1 in (15 + maintenanceMod × 2). Where "maintenanceMod" is calculated using the short blade and maintenance skills.
Below is an example of the chance of losing durability at varying levels of the maintenance and short blade skills.

For how this is calculated, see: Condition
Maintenance level Short blade level Condition lower chance Average condition
0 0 1/15 (7%) 150
0 4 1/17 (6%) 170
0 8 1/19 (5%) 190
4 0 1/19 (5%) 190
8 0 1/23 (4%) 230
4 4 1/21 (5%) 210
4 8 1/23 (4%) 230
8 8 1/27 (4%) 270
10 10 1/29 (3%) 290
