A good cleaver can easily be the most used knife in any kitchen, as it can handle a handful of tasks as well or better than its lighter counterparts. It will do the heavy-duty work, like chopping through thick meat and bone, or it may be used for finer tasks such as chopping, slicing and mincing vegetables, smashing garlic cloves or even splitting large fruits with tough outer layers, like watermelons or pineapples. Update International offers a heavy-duty option in its 7” cleaver (KCL-7HD). It is made of stainless steel and features a full tang design. The POM plastic handle is corrosion-resistant.
