The Power Cleaver is a large Power Weapon and is designated as a Dreadnought Close Combat Weapon by Imperial standards. The weapon is usually found in pairs on the Blood Slaughterer Daemon Engine. The weapon takes the form of a massive cleaver, sharp on one end and serrated on the end closest to the daemonic construct that wields it. The Power Cleaver, like any Power Weapon which emits a coruscating field of energy, is fully capable of cutting through almost any material, both flesh and steel. When a Blood Slaughterer is equipped with two of these weapons they are an effective assault vehicle, charging headlong into enemy lines and butchering entire infantry squads in seconds.
