If you have ever been intrigued with the classic Chinese cleaver but have yet to take the plunge, this keenly priced example of the genre might just be what you have been waiting for.
Tsubazo is a knife making company operating in Seki City, home of blade and sword makers for over 700 years. They are a household name in Japan where they sell their wares through local shops, food stores, and supermarkets. They are made with a stainless steel that is easy to maintain and sharpen.
This is a relatively thin blade for a cleaver, which makes for a knife that is easy to use and control. Cleavers are the one blade many eastern chefs and cooks use for almost every task in the kitchen. The sharp edge of the knife is used for cutting, while the blunter top edge is used to pound and tenderize meat. Turned on its side, the cleaver is an excellent tool for smashing garlic and ginger. You can even use it to transfer food from cutting board to pan.
These knives are not particularly sharp out of the box so we recommend using our finish sharpening service if you don't know how to sharpen.

CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
Loved the instructional videos on the website.
