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

Of course they are the default chef knife in China and other Asian countries. As such they 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.

Itís 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.

This cleaver does not fit the cleaver saya that we sell.

      Must have got a different cleaver than everyone else !, August 8, 2021
    Posted By: mark j skiba

    This thing is pitiful, the secondary bevel looks like it was ground on a 40 grit grinder, the rest of the thing is very rough none of the edges were deburred just poor workmanship.
    Thought I got a $10 Ebay cleaver.
    I must have gotten something different than the rest of the reviewers.

    Great balance. The weight is amazing for its size, allowing me to continue using for long periods of time. Holds a great edge and easy enough to maintain. Exactly what I was looking for!

    I am a banquet chef at a large casino and this cleaver is just a machine. Nice balance and very light considering it's size. It's also holds a smooth sharp edge. I would definitely recommend this cleaver to anyone in the industry.

    This CCK cleaver is awesome- fast becoming my favorite knife and I have a bunch of high quality Japanese knives as comparison. Cuts superbly and despite it's larger size it's easy to handle and just plain fun to use. easy to sharpen to razor sharp.

      This knife is one of my favorites. , January 19, 2020
    Posted By: Tom Dickinson

    I absolutely love this knife. I use it all the time and my students think it's awesome. One thing that I never thought I would be able to find though was a saya for this large cleaver. I did end up finding one in Portland, Oregon at the Portland Knife House so I can keep this great knife well protected.

      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 wish I had bought one of these years ago, January 13, 2019
    Posted By: robert Hancock - verified customer

    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.

      My new CCK Large Slicer - It's All Good., February 2, 2018
    Posted By: Dan Conrad - verified customer

    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.

      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.

      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.

      Amazing at any price, December 9, 2016
    Posted By: Phil Hand - verified customer

    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

      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!
