Use one of the bottom two daily for the past seven years, the top arrived last Christmas and will probably add more as time passes.

My friend came to visit me today, as he know's my passion for knifes he brought me a present. 

I was quite surprised to see the "top notch quality" cleaver he gave me,  it must have cost him a fortune.   :patch:   

When he arrived I was busy making "pofadder" cutting liver, kidneys and heart for the stuffing in the vetderm.  I finished the job using the cleaver and it worked a charm and in no time the job was done.  The wife cleaned up and washed the cleaver, 1st casualty, finger got cut.  A couple of staaldruppels and a decent plaster and all was good.
Later I made a salad cutting onions, cucumber, tomatoes, avo's and other salad ingredients.  Once again the cleaver did the job without any effort.  After using it I cleaned the knife blade with a damp cloth and some paper wipes, casualty nr 2, cut on my thumb.   :patch:  This thing is seriously sharp.   :deal:

Here is a pic of my latest addition to my kitchen knifes, the no name brand that cost a mere R40-00.  Cheap scate I tell you, but man this thing can cut and feels so good in the hand.  How long it will last and how long it will keep the edge is another question, but for now I am enjoying it, so much so that I ordered another 5.   :lol8:

Knifemanship.  Is there such word.

I tried lifting my kitchen knife skills a bit.  The scars on my fingers can attest  :biggrin:

Seems there are different styles for different knives.  The chinese chopper style is different from the more european chef knife style.   Dont own a chpper like this.  The wusthof 5inch chopper seems to get popular nowadays.  Will give it a go sometime
