View Full Version : Cleaving Young Coconuts

Where can I find a good coconut cleaver? I have one that couldn't do the job. Actually its a miracle I didn't cleave off my hand :)
I read that the handle and blade should be one - rather than a blade and attached handle? I hope that makes sense...

I use a serrated bread knife to shave off the white parts of the pointed top. Then I use a Chinese cleaver that I bought on Amazon for about $12. It's awesome. :)

I think most Asian markets would sell them. I know I've seen them at the ones I go to.

they do (the asian markets) i bought my cleaver there for $6 it does an outstanding job and stays sharp, look for the kiwi brand made in thailand

I third the asian markets suggestion, that's where I bought mine. Before that I'd use a knife and spend ages just hacking off the fibre.

Incidentally, if anyone is looking for a decent, cheap stone mortar and pestle, asian markets are also the way to go.
