This is a vegetable slicer.

This CCK Small cleaver was used and recommended in Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Magazine and sales have gone way up as a result. A small Chinese chef’s knife is called a Sangdao and is a great cleaver at an even greater price. It is made from carbon steel with a tough kurouchi finish. It requires extra care to keep from rusting, so it is vital to keep it clean and dry between uses.

The CCK Small Cleaver is our best-selling cleaver at CKTG. It is a wonderful introduction to the world of Chinese chef knives. The blade is quite thin for a knife of this type and has a very sharp edge. There is a very slight belly to the edge profile which reduces the chance of the end sticking into the cutting board.

Sangdao are the perfect knives to quickly and precisely chop, julienne, and slice meats and vegetables, but it will not cut any bones...so please don’t try!

This is a great choice for those wanting their first cleaver or for chefs who are looking for a workhorse for vegetable prep.

    I was so surprised. I thought because of its size I wouldn't use it much. I use it all the time and just love it.

      My new go-to knife!, February 27, 2022
    Posted By: David

    I love prepping with this! I had a cleaver before, but it was a big heavy one for meats and bones. This is an absolute delight for veggies--it especially makes garlic and ginger so much easier. I'm delighted I bought it!

      Insanely sharp and versatile, January 27, 2022
    Posted By: Carlos

    This Chinese chef's knife has become my primary day-to-day knife. It is incredibly sharp, lightweight and sturdy. I'm only a regular home cook and enjoy making more complex recipes once or twice a week. This knife makes quick work out of any vegetable and it works wonderfully at slicing and mincing meats. Just be careful because it is TRULY sharp. I've accidentally cut my fingers a few times, only my fault for not being careful.

      Very good under rated knife that is a lazer, January 22, 2022
    Posted By: Earl

    Using a basic 400/1000 grit budget friendly whetstone with a few passes with each grit, this knife became hair splitting sharp and able to slice through a sheet of copy paper while it was standing up. Cutting hard root vegetables like carrots and potatoes has very little resistance, and this doubles as a bench scraper too. This is a reactive carbon steel blade, so a bit of maintenance will be needed, but not a big issue. The cutting motion is a push/pull slice, and a light duty chopping; do NOT use it to chop through bone or anything hard. It is light, nimble, cuts like a lazer and very versatile. It is not limited to just Chinese Cuisine, it can be used to make a lot of western dishes as well. Like all knives, to maximize edge retention, use a honing steel and a synthetic cutting board. This is such a fun knife to use and it has helped me grow my culinary repertoire.

    I got this Cai Dao for my girlfriend, and she absolutely loves it!

    The only thing she didn't like was that there is a qr code engraved on the blade that looks silly and doesn't work.

    This is a fantastic knife! And an extremely good value. I am the Chef of an Asian restaurant and my whole staff uses cleavers every single day… I will encouraging everyone to get one of these! Light, nimble but very capable, great balance and THINNNN. Was quite sharp ootb but a quick touch up on my Shapton glass 2k and this thing is deadly! I have a vast collection of knives but this will be my new go-to for sure. If you are curious about Chinese cleavers or you are looking for a prep beast, get this knife!!! Looking into picking up the large one next…

    Rarely do I leave reviews. I'm not a chef but love to cook. Especially if I have good tools. This is one SHARP knife. Straight out of the box, no sharpening was necessary. It does have a very, very thin blade. It slices through vegetables, BS chicken like nobody's business. Sliced a cantaloupe this morning. No effort was needed. Would definitely buy again.

    I love this knife. I've been fascinated by the idea of using a Chinese chef's knife for a while, and I'm glad I made this purchase. Pretty sharp right out of the box. Light, easy to handle. It's the knife I reach for for just about any basic prep work now.

      Awesome Product, March 6, 2021

    Cleaver arrived early and as described. It was sharp out of the box. Be sure to care for the handle and add mineral to make sure it won't crack. I can see many years of use ahead.

    I would pay $120 for this and still feel like I got a deal. Its the first knife i have been able to push cut paper other than my Aogami super. Awesome on the line, awesome during prep. Overall badass blade.
    pros: light, dont have to worry about it as much as I do expensive knives, easy and fun to sharpen.
    cons: can easily torque weird and possibly bend or chip, water gets trapped under metal ferul thingy.

    Holy cow! This thing is wicked sharp right out of the box. Maintains the edge well. Surprisingly nimble for a cutting instrument this size. Does it all well, from slicing garlic paper-thin to cutting through carrots and boneless meats with ease. Thought it was pricey but the results convinced me otherwise.
