I'm not going to bore you with where I've been. Let's just admire my recent acquisition. I was shopping for other things in the local antique shop and there it was, the cleaver I've been seeking. It's heavy, solid, the handle isn't going anywhere, and it has obviously been through some meat in its time.
I'm glad that I'd resisted so many other cleavers. This one, while a larger version was also available, was just right in size, weight, and balance. At last, the right tool. Now, to find the right jobs.
