Even though you’re a worldly chef, your experience with cleavers begins and ends in cartoons. You don’t even know why you would ever need a cleaver; you’re not a stereotypically Italian or French chef chasing mischievous rats around your kitchen trying to cut off their tails. Hilarious, until the chef accidently clobbers himself with his own frying pan or somehow sits on a bunch of mouse traps. What an idiot. He should have never gone for the cleaver.
Let us educate you beyond the cartoon. Start with the first and last cleaver you’ll ever need in your kitchen, the 8" Traditional Chinese Chef's Knife (S5198) from Dexter-Russell. This high-carbon steel knife is especially versatile for (real-life, not animated) chefs who need to tenderize meat or smash garlic and ginger.
