Say hello to both “The Bad Boy” and “Little Boy” Brad Leone Signature Cleavers

As featured on Bon Appetit’s It’s Alive, the “Bad Boy” is your answer to it all! “Chop, cut, crush, whatever!” If you prefer something a bit smaller, the “Little Boy” is ideal for you.

The Brad Leone Signature knives all feature walnut handles and Brad’s signature.

Save $25 on these two great knives! This set includes:

With brass rivets complementing rich walnut handles, our updated Vintage Series pairs a timeless look and feel with a new ergonomic design. The sleek, tapered handles facilitate both traditional and pinch grips.

This set can be paired with our newly redesigned KnifeSafe Guards! Guard sizes needed are:

  • 1 x (56890) LAMSON KNIFE GUARD, 6.5″ BLACK
  • 1 x (56893) LAMSON KNIFE GUARD, 8.5″ BLACK, NARROW

Leather Sheaths for the 8″ “Big Boy” (52818, click here) and  for the 6″ “Little B” (52819, click here) are sold separately.


  • Signature craftsmanship. Meticulously formed in our Massachusetts facilities, each of our knives is finished to perfection using state of the art technology coupled with hand finishing as well as proprietary polishing and sharpening processes.
  • Unmatched quality. Blades are formed from proprietary high-carbon USA Made stainless steel (Grade 420HC-LAM). Knives come with sleek and sturdy handles of Infused Walnut.
  • Durable design. Our blades are precision laser cut and tempered to a hardness of 58 on the Rockwell scale. This results in a hard, wickedly sharp blade that retains an edge for longer and is both highly corrosion resistant and elastic.
  • Superior cutting performance. Full tang blades with double brass riveted handles ensure ideal balance and weight. Our combination machine and hand-sharpening processes ensures a consistently sharp and durable edge.
  • Superior ergonomic handling. A curved and recessed integrated bolster provides a seamless transition from handle to blade, resulting in comfortable thumb and finger support for better control and safety. If you use a traditional or advanced “pinch-grip”, you will love the feel and function of these knives.
  • Lifetime Warranty. Every Lamson product comes with a Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects
  • Guaranteed reliability. Our Sharp for Life™ program supplies a lifetime of complimentary professional sharpening on every knife we make.

    I ordered for my son for his birthday, I was a little concerned because we live in a small country just north of the states (Canada) and constantly here we don’t ship to Canada. They do and I received them 4 days after I ordered them. Amazing service that is only surpassed by the quality of the knives. So happy!

    Beautifully balanced Leone “”Big Boy” and “Little B” cleavers with absolutely gorgeous walnut handles with brass rivets. The handle ergonomics are magnificent- never had a handle shaped like this , and I have over 40 knives. The blade is thinner than my other cleavers for more precise cuts. And made in Massachusetts, 55356,55356, USA!!! Would not have purchased if not made here in the states (exception is my Sabatier K from France 55356,55356,).. well done Lamson and Leone!!

    Lamson knives are the best! These were gifted to my son and daughter in law. I bought them a Lamson knife about 8 yrs ago, they loved it so much as their go- to knife that they asked for another. My son is all about quality products made in the USA.
    Thank you for the quality that goes into your products. Im glad to keep adding to the collection.

    Really liking my set of “Big B” and “Little B” Chinese Santokus. They are really practical and take the place of a few of my normally used Shun Kajis. Really like the feel.
    Best of all they seem to emit an aura of humor and giddiness during food prep just like Brad .
    Now if I could just nail down his signature moves all would be perfect.

    These knives are beautiful! I gave them to my fiancée as an early Christmas gift as he has been in love with them since he saw them on Brads show “it’s alive” and they did not disappoint! Beautifully crafted and extra sharp – we were both very impressed with the quality. A few areas of improvement I would suggest is better tracking for online orders as well from a brand perspective I would suggest you make a cloth protective case Similar to the cleaning cloths provided but it’s an excellent marketing strategy as your branding will always be evident on the knife (the engraving is small and classy which we loved). We have a knife drawer for the fancy ones but because of the unique shape these guys did not fit into the case we already have – I will be purchasing protective cloth cases but would have loved to have matching ones for the cleaning cloths. Just a thought but I hope this feedback proves helpful!

In 1869, newly elected U.S. president Ulysses S. Grant received a “cutting edge” gift from a small manufacturer in Shelburne Falls Massachusetts. Lamson presented our nation’s leader with a 62-piece dinner set. 
The handcrafted pieces bore handles of ivory, while others were pure mother-of-pearl. The 62 pieces remain in the nation’s capital on display at the Smithsonian Institution.
