Preparing veggies. I bought it many years ago when I bought my wok.
I guess I prefer my gyutos now. I find them more versatile and easier to maneuver.

The man had mad crazy knife skills. OR should I say cleaver skills...

He was a bit flamboyant but I learned from his show.

Not was, still is! Yan pops up now and then, and I still love to watch him.

Same here. I'm more comfortable with a chef's knife. My stainless cleaver is still in the drawer, in it's original box. It's my oldest cutting tool, but I just don't find much use for it.

I think the use of the Chinese cleaver is narrowed if we are already used to an occidental chef knife...

One of the knives I grab most often is a Nakiri, a miniature version of the cleaver.
