Are there any US retailers that carry several Chan Chi Kee cleaver models?

    I've been looking at the Chan Chi Kee cleavers on chefs mall but I thought I'd try to find a US retailer first. Is there anyone who carries them?

    I would recommend not buying any cleavers from Chefs mall, I tried a couple of times and in the end needed to have PayPal get my money back as the cleavers were never sent. There are some older posts about my experience and others. The best place to get them besides CKTG seems to be on ebay, they are sent from Hong Kong, I have bought a few this way with success.

    I suggest ebay too. I was successful with Chefs Mall for a while and then something changed over there. I made the trip to Shanghai Street a couple of years ago but with the way Hong Kong is not that is probably not a good option.

    Cktg has got them and has always been a pleasure for me to deal with.

    Daovua leaf spring is also mono steel so perhaps easier to deal with patina.

    Sigh, unfortunately that amounts to 2 or 3 shops here in town and they only carry 1 or 2 knives of dubious quality.
