Cleavers are in! Well at least in the minds of many chefs who swear by their fast and efficient ability to take on a huge variety of cutting, copping and slicing duties.

Of course they are the default chef knife in China and other Asian countries. And as such obviously are able to do everything the western or Japanese chef knife can do. What is amazing is that despite their size and weight, they can process the smallest of ingredients with a deft action. This particular example is even more adept at these delicate tasks as it comes with a rather thin blade compared to other cleavers of this size. The blade also takes a really impressive edge.

Its a carbon steel construction so rusting and corrosion can take place if you let them stay wet or dirty. Once you get to use and appreciate the subtleties of the Chinese cleaver you might also become a proponent of the school that believes that this is the only knife a chef needs for the vast majority of his or her daily cutting requirements.

    5  Best knife ever, June 13, 2019
    Posted By: Michael Lapena - verified customer

    Used in a very high volume restaurant and catering company. Easily replaced my regular French set except my bread, boning, and cleaver. Retained edge with a minimal passes through a homing steel.

    I started off with a smaller version, but should have gone directly to this model. It is the most versatile knife that I have ever used in the kitchen. I use it for everything except paring. It holds an edge very well and feels perfectly balanced for a larger hand. The knife arrived quickly and was well-packaged. I would say that I would order again from chefsknivestogo, except I can't see a situation where I will need to buy another knife.

    Its lighter than it looks, and gets super sharp. The handle and finish aren't amazing, but not uncomfortable either. Denifintly worth every penny.

    5  My new CCK Large Slicer - It's All Good., February 2, 2018
    Posted By: Dan Conrad - verified customer
    1 people found this review helpful

    Things got off to a great start for me when I placed my order on a Fri and received my large slicer the following Mon. I put it to work right away, and it has become my go to knife for all tasks. Very sharp right out of the box, great balance and food "processing" and transfer utility. I really like the appearance of the knife as well; the calligraphy stampings on the blade, and the way that it resonates. Carbon steel does require diligent cleaning and drying after use, which is no big deal to me. I find myself cutting up fruit and veggies every day. Adding my new CCK Large Slicer in to the mix has made cooking more fun; I actually look forward to using the thing.

    5  I fell in love with this cleaver , December 31, 2017
    Posted By: Tom D Dickinson - verified customer

    I didn't think I would absolutely love this cleaver, but I do. I have been a chef for almost fifteen years and this is the best Chinese cleaver I have ever purchased. It's light for it's size, it's sharp as hell, and it gets the job done. I would definitely recommend this cleaver to anyone of my chef friends for purchase. Excellent knife.

    5  Exceptional value, puts the fun back in functional, February 7, 2017
    Posted By: Scott E - verified customer

    I have a couple slicing cleavers, gyuto, nakiri, etc., but the large CCK seems to occupy the sweet spot for pure chopping pleasure. This was actually my first purchase from CKTG a couple of years ago and nothing has displaced it as my go-to for any significant amount of prep. The edge tapers out to crazy thin so I've never had it wedge in anything I've used it to cut (I wouldn't personally do hard squash with it). It sharpens up nicely too and prompted me to improve my freehand skills since it's too tall to fit on the deck of an EP Apex sharpener. For the price it's absolutely the favorite knife in my kit.

    Out of the box sharp and keeps staying that way. I just hit it with a hone once a day and it just keeps going. I love the size and weight. I just keep it clean and oil it at night before I go home. You can't beat it.

    I have been using the CCK small cleaver and the Richmond Fanatic for many years as my primary knife. But this thing is huge and preforms just as good . Surprising weight based on how big this thing is,But very very thin at the edge. I just wish there was a stainless version on this knife like my Richmond

    5  Impeccable service and great cleaver, April 18, 2015
    Posted By: Anton - verified customer

    Have the 1303 and decided to add one of these. Surprised that it isn't much larger than the small cleaver. Little taller and longer, but probably not much more than one inch. Diced a cabbage effortlessly. I now tend to use a cleaver over my other knives. Whilst cutting quickly is more difficult, for a basic kitchen novice they ensure you slow down and the large blade means it's easier to keep the fingers back from the blade. Little more weight to it and still a great knife to handle. Would highly recommend this over the smaller 1303, but in reality you wouldn't be disappointed with either for the money.Service and shipping simply the best. Ordered Friday and arrived Monday. Considering Monday was a national holiday and I am in the uk then simply faultless service as ever. Mark ships quicker than anything I can get in the uk!

    I bought this to upgrade from the cck 1303. Excellent purchase, great steel, somehow takes a similar edge to my white #2 gyuto.

    One additional observation here- the blade literally sings when it slices, and is being sharpened. Musical and highly functional, slicer perfection, even at the significantly increased price!

    I've recently acquired a 1303 (small slicer) and 1103 (large slicer), and have found the 1103 to be the superior tool. It weighs 50% more (15 vs 10 ounces, rounded), and performs at a much higher level. The 1303 may have a niche for smaller users (cooking together with gf) or finer cuts, but I find myself using the 1103 90% of the time, grinning uncontrollably all the while. I love them both, but recommend the large slicer if you must choose.

    The large CCK slicer came in the box very sharp. After about ten minutes on a fine Norton bench stone it can slice completely across a sheet of newspaper with snagging. If you are not a pro I highly reccomend watching the many U tube videos on how to use a Chinese Cleaver. If you hold it forward of the handle it handles like a dream. Although it is very different I enjoy using it every bit as much as my Wusthof 10 inch chefs knife. I like the large size and enjoy using it over my Dexter= Russel Chinese cleaver. The CCK is a no none sense tool for cutting. A tool for doing lots of cutting.

    The knife was a great buy. I love the size and feel of the blade in my hand. It chops through everything with ease. I don't use it on bones, but everything else glides through the cut.Cons: The blade got a little bit of rust after the second wash. So now I wash the blade then put a light coat of olive oil to help keep it from rusting any further.

    I love the excess of this knife. It's huge. And in a good way. When coworkers see me use it they want to pick it up. All are surprised by the light weight and razor sharp blade it can take. Glad I finally picked one up.

    Quality of materials and construction not the top of the line, but thinness of blade, weight, ability to take a sharp edge, and price make this a good buy.

    I was searching all over for an authentic CarbonSteel Chinese Cleaver in Germany, all i could find was either StainlessSteel made in china or good but expensive japanese made Cleaver. My search ended, when i accidaently stumoled on Chefknivestogo. A few Days after the Order, the Cleaver arrived at my Home in Germany.It exactly like i wanted it, very, very thin Blade measuring 231x110mmm, After a few strikes on my 1000/3000 Combo Stone it achieved a pretty good edge, sharp enough to be cut newspaper. Edge Holding Capability is comparable with the famous german Herder Windmuehle Carbon Knives, good but not as good as Jap Hagane Steel.Recently, i took it on the Stones again in Order to remove some of the rustprotecting Laquer and smoothed the Edges of the Spine. Now it has taken a nice Patina, which i prefer on a Carbon Knife.This Knife has become on of my Favorites in my Selection among my traditional Japanese Knives. Great Buy, takes a great Edge, retains it well, easy to sharpen, kick ass Profile => highly recommended !!

    I didn't know how much I enjoyed cleavers until I got this knife. I have a Shun, and several other chef knifes, and I enjoy the versatility and ability of this cleaver more than my other knives. The edge keeps for a great long time and you can bang it around. I work as a banquet cook and use my knifes all day. Also, totally stoked for getting the larger version of this cleaver.

    For the price this cleaver is a amazing bargain. I recommend it to any person who enjoys using a vegetable cleaver for home or pro use. it has a thin blade, light wight, and decent stock edge I took it to work day of arrival and was and still am very happy with the knife. Now I understand why it has a cult following among some knife forum members Oh yeah if you are a cleaver guy forget the small and get this one you will be glad you did.
