    Knife to cut frozen food

    I often have frozen cookie dough, meats, all sorts of frozen stuff.

    what would be a good knife to cut these with? Should I buy a cheap cleaver? Should I use my lower end tojiro dp gyuto?

    A relatively soft carbon cleaver or a Western deba -- all will get damaged as well. But repair is very easy if you maintain them with highly convexed edges. Not so with a comm hard gyuto which hasn't enough steel behind the edge and where you may expect serious chipping.

    Tojiro make a special knife for cutting frozen food. Probably easier to find than the Mac , similar idea with teeth but more of a bread knife shape.

    THERE I can indeed fully recommend a certain Kiwi - their 2mm thick cleavers do me good service splitting off and mincing frozen coarse grated coconut (an ingredient that makes keralan and goan dishes great when there are no decent coconuts around ).

    I wouldn't look that much at the spine thickness, but more for total weight, and fat thickness behind the edge.
