If you’re new to navigating your way around the knife drawer, and you have one or two knives you regularly use, you might not have considered purchasing a vegetable cleaver. However, even if you’re not a top chef, we highly recommend getting one of these multi-functional warriors.


Cleaver, available for purchase here.

Yes, this knife looks intimidating. But, you don’t need to be a professional chef to master it! The Vegetable Cleaver is a superior, multifunctional knife because its functions range from cracking open shellfish to delicately chopping Cilantro. One of the reasons this knife is able to do so many things is because the blade itself is a little shorter than a meat cleaver. Essentially, you can go from hacking away at a piece of crab to chopping up a tomato with total control. We think that in itself is pretty amazing.

If you hate the mess created from chopping, use the large flat blade to wipe the cutting board clean. You can quite easily prep a full meal and quickly whisk away the mess with one knife.

Compared to the traditional meat cleaver, the vegetable cleaver is insanely versatile, lighter, and built for fine cutting and chopping.

“The Chinese cleaver is not a butcher’s knife…The everyday cleaver, the cai dao or vegetable knife, is unexpectedly light and dexterous, as suitable for slicing a small shallot as a great hunk of meat, and used by everyone from the most macho chef to the frailest old lady.”

If you’re an amateur chef and you don’t want multiple knives, just buy this one. The best part about being a beginner chef with a new tool? You don’t have to worry about damaging this one.
