Preparing dinner should be a breeze and it could be if you stock your kitchen with the proper tools. This Chinese cleaver is a multi-functional knife that can handle many tasks. The thin razor-sharp blade is ideal for chopping vegetables or slicing through boneless meats for precise cuts while the spine is great for pounding and tenderizing chicken or steak to optimize the flavor and succulence of the meat. Turn the cleaver on its side and use the wide edge to crush garlic and ginger to extract essential oils and flavors and then use the cleaver to scoop up the ingredients off the board and place into the pan. Meticulously crafted for the ultimate weight balance to reduce hand fatigue and provide greater control, the POM handle is designed to fit comfortably in the palm of the hand to ensure a safe and comfortable grip during food prep.
