Chinese cleavers or notably known as Chinese chef’s knife deviates from the common chef’s knife we see. They are just plain larger for a chef’s knife. But the Chinese people use them in their kitchen from vegetables to slabs of meat.
The best Chinese cleaver can be an all-around knife. Though you cannot use it for peeling potatoes (well you can, it would be just insanely impractical!), they can perform many tasks in the kitchen.
