I’m watching yet another idyllic rural Chinese cooking channel on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoC47do520os_4DBMEFGg4A. The host frequently uses a knife I am not familiar with, as a slicer, a cleaver, and sometimes a garden machete. You can see it at 14:28 in this video: https://youtu.be/HyoWTJtp4a4.
Anyone familiar with this, or used one, or even know what it is called? The shape is significantly different than the one-piece all-metal cleavers in Chinese groceries in the US.
I found something similar here https://raknife.com/product/banyan/ (the vendor in fact has a very strange blog post about Liziqi), but have not seen it anywhere else. I think the product name is a trade name, not a traditional name.
I am definitely intrigued by this knife style, and how she uses it.
