    I have the 1103 and wish it was bigger. I really like it, though.

    I have the larger one as well and think it is perfect size.

    I think it really comes down to personal preference. Do you have prior experience with chinese cleavers?

    I'm more of a fan of the 110* series myself. I have had both and over the years the 110* has held up the best... For Me. I gave the 130* to a fellow cook that is still using it

    I have got the bigger one, CCK 1103, and I like it a lot. Thin, light, perfect weight...

    After trying and using different sizes of cleavers since I switched to them a bunch of years ago I much prefer full size cleavers, but that it´s my preference.

    Have never tried or seen a Shibazi

    Regards

    I think Andy reviewed a Shibazi over in the other forum a few years back. Imo, the 1303 is a good introductory cleaver, to help aid in the transition from a 'standard' chef's knife.
