This is a great tool in the kitchen. It’s not a meat cleaver but a vegetable cleaver. Clever? Yes. It has more heft than a chef’s knife, but not as heavy as a meat cleaver so those chopping jobs don’t get too tiring. It’s great for slicing vegetables and smashing garlic, or for slicing through that frozen chub of breakfast sausage or venison that a friend gives you (hint). And it’s $3.99 at Ikea.
