I've got a friend in the EU that's interested in buying an inexpensive Sangdao; carbon or stainless... CCK, Shi Ba Zi, etc. Struggling to find good sources. Any suggestions?

I got this ChinShun from ugou.de. It's ground thin enough to use ootb. About 220*105 at 370g. The belly is a nice curve, heel and tip about 3mm off the board. Low reactivity. I like it.
Usually they restock.

Does this seller ship to your friend's country? It ships to some EU countries.

Unfortunately not... :( Also, kinda wanted to keep this in the EU, since the way tariffs, duties, taxes, etc are at the moment, it could nearly double the price of the thing if not coming from within the EU.

Thank you anyway for the help. Much appreciated.

i have been looking around a bit on Dutch websites (I will let my fellow Europeans do their homework 😉). Admittedly CCK's and similar are hard to find.

Well known store:

The ones below offer CCK and look serious enough (based in The Netherlands not China) but no personal experience with them:




Hope this helps!

I would like some rcommondations within the EU too.
Same. :p But ideally one that doesn't leave you too ripped off either. :)
I've already looked in most of hte local oriental shops but none of them sell them. They're supposed to be relatively cheap, but not after you add all the shipping and import tax from going the ebay route.

I never got a #3 with stainless handle in my hands. Do you own that knife? 190mm with 292g sounds good, The no1 on the pic and 8mm are irritating?

Il'd like sth in range, but no more thinning projects please!

Unfortunately just a link, never handled it.

(The (Brick and mortar) shop is in my town, remembered seeing some cleavers there)
