POST #896 CHINESE STYLE SOLID STAINLESS STEEL CHOPPING KNIFE I love things I can’t break (I’m good at breaking things). I love things that last forever (you don’t find them often). I’ve been graced to have found a wonderful knife years ago - it was my first food processor, and it still does serious duty in my kitchen. My knife is a solid stainless steel Chinese-style chopping knife (cleaver), which will cut just about anything you want to cut, including opening a Thai coconut, or even a dried one (okay, you’ll have to sharpen it later). My knife and a good sharpener have done me good stead for over 20 years.
