Chopper Knife King in Taiwan is making some interesting knives and once again CKTG is the first dealer in the USA to bring them to you. This thin slicing knife is made with White #2 carbon steel imported from Japan. At only about 1.5mm thick they are true laser-type cleavers and will slide through vegetables. Compared to some similar cleavers we've sold in the past like Shi Ba Zi they're in a different league. The knives come with surprisingly decent out-of-the-box edge and pretty darn good fit and finish. They have more belly than the CCK 1303 so customers who like to rock a little with their knives will enjoy them. Give these a try! We think they're excellent values for the price.

*Our cleaver saya does not fit this cleaver due to the height of the blade.

    Ordered Two Cleavers. This Cleaver for 60 bucks is a steal. White #2-put on a stone for 5 minutes and razor sharp now. Fit and finish very well done. Thanks!

    So after looking at my chopper king for a day and a half I pulled it out to do some vegetable prep. I squared off a carrot and proceeded to cut an incredibly fine julienne, the thinnest Iíve ever cut. Literally cut like it was butter.

    My server Riley was standing next to me, staring in amazement. All she could say was that the cuts were not fine enough. Lol

    All I can say is after 46 years in the kitchen it was the best experience Iíve ever had with a knife. Period.

    This is an impressive blade. Itís heavier than my Dao Vua Small Cleaver, Iím guessing the stainless cladding accounts for the additional weight. Iím got complaining; the leaf spring has quite a funky patina that is rather menacing but I have to wipe it all the time as I use it constantly. Anyway, Iím gonna spend a few hours working polishing it so I needed a replacement. I did abuse it today on a case of chickens, so it needs a little tlc.
    Iím excited to graduate to Shirogami carbon steel. It looks like it will get stupid sharp after a pass or two on my Cerax 1000. And with the curved belly Iíll be able to do a little rocking. My cooking is very simple but the garnishes are very intricate; very fine julienne and brunoise. It doesnít make sense to me to invest in quality knives and stones and not use them. If Iím in the kitchen and not behind the stove Iíve got a knife in my hand.
    I donít own a gyuto. A cleaver with an assortment of petty knives works for me. This will be a welcome addition too my knife bag.

      Carbon steel performance without the fuss, March 22, 2022

    This knife is the twin sister of the Chopper King Aus-10 cleaver. They are functionally identical, with the only difference being that this model features a carbon steel core. Because this knife has stainless cladding, you get the best of both worldsóthe performance and sharpenability of carbon steel with the ease of maintenance of stainless. Yes, you do have to wipe the blade down after using it to prevent rust formation, but it's much easier to care for than knives with reactive cladding, such as the CCK small slicer (1303). In my experience, the Chopper King White #2 cleaver is also much less likely to impart any off flavors to food products, which sometimes happens with other carbon steel knives before they have developed a patina. On mine, I used a little yellow mustard to force a patina, and now I basically treat it like any other knife in my collection, no special care required.

    If you haven't owned a knife with White #2 steel (also called Shirogami #2), you owe it to yourself to try one out. They are an absolute dream to sharpen. Like other commenters have said, they almost "want" to get sharp on their own. If you value simplicity, this knife is a good candidate for a one-stone sharpening routine using something like the Naniwa Aotoshi Green Brick, also available here on the site. This Chopper King cleaver comes with a nice out-of-the-box edge. Mine had no problem passing the paper slicing test when I received it.

    Overall, I am thrilled with this knife. I view it as an across-the-board upgrade from my CCK 1303. If you started with a CCK and are looking to change things up a bit, this Chopper King would be a great model to consider. This is also a great option for folks looking to try a Chinese cleaver for the first time. They are amazingly versatile kitchen tools.
