This elegant, heirloom-quality tool is designed for serious work in the kitchen and field for years to come.

We designed and manufactured each Butcher's Haste in collaboration with James Beard award-winning Chef Chris Hastings, owner of Birmingham, Alabama’s Hot & Hot Fish Club, and acclaimed knife maker Will Manning of Heartwood Forge in Jonesborough, Tennessee.

Each Haste comes with Heartwood Forge's lifetime free sharpening and maintenance (round-trip shipping not included), and a full-grain leather head cover.

Inspired by an antique French piece Chef Chris Hastings has carried for years, the Butcher’s Haste is a 14” long hatchet-meets-cleaver with a 5” curved blade and a 5” stabilized black cherry wood handle from Birmingham's Alabama Sawyer. We designed the Butcher’s Haste to chop thick pieces of meat and bone while doubling as a skinning blade and mezzaluna. Will Manning forged the blade, shaft, and tang of each Butcher’s Haste from carbon steel. Bronze pins complete the assembly. Made in Jonesborough, Tennessee by Heartwood Forge.


You must be 18 years of age or older to purchase the Butcher's Haste. Check your local laws and restrictions before ordering any knife. Even though you may be able to check out with the Butcher's Haste, it will be removed from your order if shipping to a restricted location (available in continental United States only).

The Butcher’s Haste combines two essential components of proper butchering: precision and heft.

  • 5" curved blade.

  • 5” stabilized black cherry wood handle from Alabama Sawyer.
