RE: Favorite Knives?
What about a vegetable cleaver?

I am very familiar with my old, basic, heavy-duty cleaver that i use to whack away at meats and joint chickens, but when looking at my favorite Shun knives I see they have similarly-shaped cleavers that are meant ONLY for veggies. Of course, they are in the Asian tradition and i guess the different technique that is used with these allow for an easier veggie-slicing experience. Anyone have one? Do you like it? (They sure look purdy!)

Hi Nung!

Received a Henkel veg cleaver many moons ago as a wedding present. I've used it exactly twice. Probably just a lack of technique understanding on my part, but I whiz through veg with my santuko about 3X faster, smoother, and more safely(mostly) than with that Dark Ages looking Henkel.

It'd probably make a great home defense weapon though...thing looks scary as ****!Big Grin

Thanks, Sunset!

I think the different technique has to be used for it to be efficient.

RE: Favorite Knives?
Back in the day I worked for a very busy restaurant in the Chi-town area. We went through truck loads of chicken and duck. My tool of preference was the cleaver, a very sharp one as it was sturdy enough and blunt enough to hack out the backs of the birds. Anything else was primarily done with a chefs knife.

    inherited two of these from my grandparents, one well used, and one well preserved. While not exactly a knife it is in the cutlery category, a formidable weapon in its own right, works really well when pulling pork or other meats, And it works equally well when handling small portions or whole birds.

Do deep thoughts and lofty ideals cancel each other out?

That's a handy lil device, birds beware!
