This Inexpensive Cleaver Lasts a Lifetime—And Just Might Replace Most of Your Knives

That was true for my mother, who helmed our family’s Chinese restaurant for more than 20 years. Each Dexter cleaver is inscribed with the Dexter name in English and in phonetic Mandarin characters. Also in Mandarin are the characters for “Chinese kitchen chef’s knife.” Imitators have copied the design down to the Mandarin inscription. You can buy a Dexter Chinese cleaver from a restaurant supply shop, wokshop.com, Amazon, and other retailers. Even though I have a full collection of high-end knives, I often reach for my Dexter cleaver to do a task that might otherwise require two or three separate tools.
