This is the standard CCK Small Cleaver model 1303 with a nicely finished Bubinga handle in place of the stock plain wood one. The difference is substantial. The cleaver is such a wonderful tool for all kinds of kitchen tasks that it begs for a handle that offers the user the comfort and security they need to get through a full dayís prep work.
Chan Chi Kee knives are still hand forged, ground, shaped and sharpened. Walk into any kitchen in the world where real Chinese food is prepared, and you'll most likely find one or more.
This is the Swiss Army Knife of kitchen blades. The sharp edge of the blade is used for cutting. The blunter top edge is used to pound and tenderize meat. Turned on its side, the cleaver is an excellent tool for smashing garlic and ginger and even for transferring food from the cutting board.
A jack of all trades and master of all tasks. The Chinese cleaver could well become your kitchen weapon of choice. The CCK Small Cleaver Bubinga could be your gateway into this fascinating world.

Exactly what I wanted - a CCK1303 without that horrible stubby handle.
CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
Loved the instructional videos on the website.
Great service and quick shipping. Best selection of Japanese knives around. I recommend this site to all of my fellow culinary professionals!
