What is a hanging hole?


The hanging hole is a hole found in near the cutting edge and front-most part of the blade on meat cleavers. It’s used to hang the blade on a meat hook or butcher’s belt. Having the hole on the blade as opposed to the handle allows for an easier and safer grip when reaching for the knife and reduces the risk of the blade edge bumping into the wall and dulling.
