An Asian cleaver is perfect for dicing and chopping up vegetables, fruit, and meat, making it a convenient addition to any commercial kitchen. Though these knives are referred to as cleavers, they're really all-purpose chef knives that feature a large rectangular blade. The thinner metal construction makes them lightweight, so you can move them quickly for a range of tasks like slicing meat, chopping vegetables, and crushing cloves of garlic.
Choose from blades of different lengths depending on the size of your ingredients. You can find an Asian cleaver with a classic wooden handle or with a modern Poly handle that features an ergonomic design. Some cleavers also come with metal handles, depending on your preferences. We offer heavy-duty cleavers that can cut through meat and bone and others that are designed for use on vegetables. For added customization, you can find cleavers with different blade weights to suit your cutting task and your comfort preferences, too.
Use an Asian cleaver to slice meat or vegetables into thin pieces, chop up onions for stir fry, or crush ginger and garlic for seasoning. Whether you run a Chinese restaurant or own an American grill, these all-purpose cleavers will make any task easier thanks to their thin, light blades. You can even carry chopped ingredients from your cutting board to your pan or wok using the flat side of the blade. We also carry cleavers with several handle options, so your staff won't tire as quickly as they work. For additional cutlery and knife supplies, be sure to check out our knife bags, rolls, and cases. You can also find knife racks and knife steels for care and storage options.
