    Been in Thailand for the past 3 months and had been meaning to grab a chopping cleaver, finally picked one up from the market. a really heavy Aranyik brand cleaver and chopping block made from really dense and heavy tamarind tree. $6 for the cleaver and $3 for thr Block. I have an old hickory cleaver back home and this thing is beastly heavy compared to it, it’s got around 3/16” thick spine and should have no problem at all chopping through bone, had my brother in law put a wicked edge on it with his primitive wet stone.

    googled the brand name and found out they are hand hammer forged in a small village about 150 miles north of me, saw a store selling cleavers for around $35 and the chopping block for $45, going back to the weekend market next week to grab a few more knives and maybe another cutting block.
