  1. The SRD only gives a means to determine costs and weights of weapons for Large and Small versions based on the Medium weapons. Any other supplied values are the author's best determination.

The great cleaver lives up to its name in that is it little more than an oversized meat cleaver when used. Build like a greatsword, the blade is thick, heavy, and broad. There is no stabbing tip, instead it is used more like an axe. Some Great Cleavers look like a cleaver, others have the handle inset into the blade itself. Regardless of how it looks, it is a powerful, but unwieldy, weapon.

The great cleaver is too large to wield in one hand without special training (the appropriate Exotic Weapon Proficiency feat). A character can use a great cleaver two-handed as a martial weapon.
