I went ahead and bought the cheap cleaver posted earlier in this thread.



Not as heavy as I'd imagined, but heavy enough. Need to put a bevel on it, I suppose. Don't really know how to do that.

that's a my knife

Take any sharpening thing you want; the knife cheap enough to not worry about loving up if you do it bad. It's also my favorite drat tool for any vegetable or nut or really anything that isn't a protein

Any suggestions for one of those cheap chinese cleavers on amazon? i want to get one, and would prefer not to deal with waiting weeks from one of the chinese freight sites.

I got this one. Itís a complete beater but it magically flies through onions with the least resistance of any of my knives, maybe because the sides are rough and bumpy

I'd go with one of these (carbon steel). I like the # 3 size. Shipping is hella fast - I think I got mine in three or four days. Lot of other great stuff there too

My god, it's full of !

Both of those look pretty much identical to the one from Ali for slightly cheaper depending on coupons and without the wait.

lol at the 2x price markup on amazon for the #4.

Keep in mind that even the #1 sold by Wok Shop is a small-rear end Chinese cleaver/sangdao. I don't still have mine, but I think it was around 210mm (vs around 230 for a CCK KF1301). The #4 is more like 190mm.

They're...okay. The CCK cleavers are all workmanlike, no frills but well-made and solid for an inexpensive blade. I think the fit and finish on the SBZs is slightly better, although I think this is only really noticeable on the higher-end stainless `pro' models (that is, the ones that are around US$30 instead of around US$20). The fit and finish on the Wok Shop cleavers is pretty cheap. I don't recognise the brand markings etched on the blade---I still have a #4 and it says it's a #4 sangdao at the bottom, and above that says (I think---it's pretty faint, hard to make out, and my Chinese is basically non-existent) 利顶锋.
