The Shun Classic Vegetable Cleaver, sometimes known as a Chinese cleaver, is a large, squared knife with a very wide blade. It is a multi-purpose knife—the Chinese answer to a chef's knife. It's especially useful for processing vegetables, especially larger ones such as cabbage, which are frequently a part of Chinese cuisine. Yet this cleaver is nimble enough for almost every kind of cutting and slicing, from fruits and vegetables to a full array of proteins. The Shun Classic Vegetable Cleaver feels solid, yet Shun's thinner blade makes it easy to handle so food preparation is a pleasure. The Shun Classic Vegetable Cleaver isn't for use on joints or bones; the Meat Cleaver is made for that.
