I really wanted to buy a Nakiri but they are usually expensive... Where did you get yours ?

I have become accustomed to using my chinese cleavers on a everyday basis. Other knives feel a little weird in my hands now.

I've had mine for a while. I think I bought it from CKTG when it was on sale. If memory serves, it was around 60 dollars.

It's not cheap but it should be great quality knife isn't it ?
Anyway, many people talking about CKTG... Positive feedback ?

CKtG is as good as it gets. I never buy anything knife related without checking there first.

I use mine for nearly all chores where a knife is required. Even carving a roast or poultry. I reckon the only thing I don't use it for is filleting small to medium size fish.

Thanks Rob ! I will definitely check it out before I buy any new knife.

Hoot you are a Chinese cleaver Power User ! This knife is very versatile indeed. I even use it to split light bones of poultry.

And Agree, Filleting fish may not be its favorite domain.
