CCK or Chan Chi Kee cleavers are a Hong Kong-based producer of cleavers and other kitchen equipment. They pretty much universally considered to be best in class.
SHAPE: Chinese cleaver. The quintessential Chinese cooking tool comes in many different forms. The silhouette is almost always the same but the girth and length are the key players here.

This cleaver is one of the more multi purpose cleavers. It retains a certain amount of thickness to the spine allowing poultry based bone bashing.
