I just think it's so wild that you get two of the best PvE DPS weapons in the entire game in the first 20-30 minutes of play time. That is something very unique about Bloodborne compared to other FromSoftWare titles. I see people in like NG+ 2 using the Cleaver as their main weapon and it's still doing good damage. I personally think the SS is the better weapon out of the two because it does serrated damage in both forms unlike the Cleaver, and I think the SS has the better moveset with the R2 thrust, but it obviously depends on your builds stats. And I do miss the Cleaver's funny flattening attack with the follow-up to the charged R2.
Basically, more Strength focused, Cleaver, more skill focused SS, but in a quality build, even if the Cleaver does slightly more damage, I still think the SS wins out because of the moveset and the advantage to doing the bonus beast damage in both forms instead of only one. And that SS R2 thrust attack and really deal good ranged damage and severely punish enemies weak to thrust attacks. But both great weapons, great game, and bloody hell am I happy I finally got a PS5. Cheers.
