This is a vegetable slicer. If you donít own a CCK cleaver you are missing out on one of the pillars of knifedom. Thatís a bit of an exaggeration, but this type of knife and this brand in particular are possibly used by more cooks and chefs around the world than any other.
Chan Chi Kee (CCK) is a kitchen knife and supply company located in Hong Kong. They supply the local and international market with a full range of kitchenware and cutlery. They manufacture all of their cutlery in-house using fine steels and traditional methods, honed over decades.
The CCK Small Stainless Cleaver is a perfect tool for professional and amateur chefs looking for a maintenance free Chinese style cutter. This is designed as a vegetable slicer. It is not a heavy duty cleaver that would be used to chop bones and hard items. The blade is quite thin for this type of knife and it makes for a very easy-to-use processor of ingredients.
The CCK Small Stainless Cleaver is a great introduction to the fascinating world of Chinese cleavers. You will be amazed at how efficient and controllable it is. Around the world, many cooks say a cleaver is their number one knife for the majority of their cutting, slicing, and chopping duties. Try one out and you might agree! Highly recommended. Our cleaver saya does NOT fit this knife--it's WAY too big.
Super inexpensive, nice quality. Bought on a whim to chop veggies in a high end Grand Junction restaurant. Co workers are perplexed, and jelly that it Came with custom Saya.. nice economical buy, this knife is razor sharp, stout, and gravy to to sharpen. thank You Folks for continuous, great purchases... Be Blessed
Not easy to find. I am hooked on this knife. It's light and fast and easy to hold. Chef Knives To Go went out of their way to procure these. I'm happy to now have a back-up and I'll be giving the others I bought as gifts.
