Cleavers

_​_

A cleaver is a robust kitchen tool with a broad blade, ideal for chopping meat and bones. Its versatility extends to tasks like crushing garlic, chopping veggies, and even opening coconuts, making it a valuable addition for home cooks who enjoy preparing meals from scratch.

A cleaver is used for heavy-duty tasks like chopping through bones, cutting thick meat, and tough vegetables.

Cleavers have a thicker and heavier blade designed for chopping through hard materials, unlike thinner knives used for slicing.

Look for a well-balanced, heavy-duty blade with a comfortable handle and consider the size of the cleaver based on your needs.

Use a firm grip, keep your fingers away from the blade, and apply force straight down. Chop using the blade's heel for the most force.

Regularly hone the edge, sharpen as needed, clean after each use, and store in a safe place to protect the blade.
