Chan Chi Kee - Chinese Cleavers & Restaurant Quality Equipment

Yesterday, I went to my favourite street in Yau Ma Tai to get a couple of restaurant grade Chinese cleavers. One of the best shops in the street is Chan Chi Kee Cutlery, G/F 316-318 Shanghai Street, Kowloon Hong Kong email:

If you visit their website you will notice that shopping for Chinese cleavers is serious business as there is not one or two to choose from but a whole catalogue! Well looked after your Chinese cleaver should last many years, just remember to wash it straight away after use, apply a smear of oil and store it in a safe place.

If you are going to use a whet stone to sharpen your cleaver, soak it in water for 20 minutes then sharpen both sides of the blade at a 30-35 degree angle. If you sharpen the stone 10 times on one side then this is how many times you need to do it on the other side. If you accidently chip your cleaver whilst chopping, then sharpening is going to take considerably longer. Note: Chan Chi Kee Cutlery Co. Ltd delivers worldwide and also have a huge range of other restaurant quality items including but not limited to pastry making, baking, dim sum, moulds, woks, strainers, skimmers and ladles etc.
