    As if I didn't already want a cleaver bad enough already, now I really want 2, one heavy for chopping bones and one thinner for general purpose. shopping shopping shopping.

    Thanks to Andy!

    I have cooked (at home) for very many years. I go way back guys, to cooking on a woodburning, black iron stove at a farm where I lived. And by the way, those old cookstoves are marvelous cooking tools! I also still cook with cast iron pans and have some 100+ years old.

    But on to my thanks to Andy. I had an odd assortment of German blades and Forschner/Victorinox knives. Then I came across Japanese knives. Wow! What an eye opener. I bought some Mac knives and thought I was in heaven. In the course of my looking and learning about all the just so beautiful craftsmanship found in Japanese knives, I came across Andy's article on cleavers.

    I set myself a challenge to cook for one week using nothing but a cleaver and paring knife (I also have an old Forschner serrated bread knife for the crusty bread I bake). I purchased a CCK 1303 Cleaver and an inexpensive Tojiro Petty and started cooking.

    I have never looked back. I can fully prepare anything here at home with that combination. Of course, I am looking at an upgrade to maybe a Tanaka 150mm, Damascus, Blue Steel Petty and maybe the Tojiro 270 ITK Bread Knife but for now, the CCK stays put.

    Sorry to be long winded but a great big thanks to ANDY, for teaching this old dog new tricks! I am a happy cook!

    A barbeque believer will not profane pork by boiling, liquid-smoking, submeging in sous-vide, or affirm with those who do.
