Stainless Steel Chinese Cleaver... Why you should get one !

Hello guys,

I just bought a Chinese cleaver and I must admit that I love it !

It s also known under its Chinese name "Chai Dao" which literally translate by " Kitchen Knife ". It is a great all-around knife.

It is very different from a traditional american or european cleaver.
If you know japanese knives, the chinese cleaver looks more like a NAKIRI knife.

I've tested the uses of this knife. If you have questions about the knife I would gladly answer to them ;)

Gab

12", that's a bigee! Nice handle and price.
Nice omelette.
Would be interesting to see / hear your sharpening techniques.

Thanks, Bill. I thought he had a pic of the knife that wasn't loading for me.

Thanks Justplainbill ! The blade is big but when you use it as a spatula, it feels great !

I will definitely post another media where I sharpen this Chinese cleaver.

I've got one of those. A Chinese knife I call it. I don't use it that much anymore. Not as much as I used to anyway.

What were your uses of it before ? Why did you stop using it ?

Sharp pointy corners can present a hazard to cutting boards.
