In Vietnamese kitchen, we prefer to cook meals from fresh ingredients. A cleaver is well suited for its ease to use. In contrast to other kitchen knives, a cleaver has an especially tough edge, replies on its weight to cut efficiently. It serves many purposes, from chopping up bones, hard shell seafood such as crabs or lobsters to precision cutting, such as mincing meat, and crushing garlic. It is also a superb tool for slicing vegetables thinly.
