This is the store where CCK- Chan Chi Kee- knives are sold in Hong Kong. Located on Shanghai Street in the old section of Yau Ma Tei in Kowloon, this is where their cleavers are packaged up to be shipped to e.g. North America.
Don’t expect a Sur La Table type of shiny store with fancy lighting. CCK is strictly utilitarian with all kinds of reasonably-priced kitchenware, in addition to the full range of their knives.
Knives being packaged to be shipped to North America. Maybe they will show up at Chefsknifetogo:
Butcher block. The thinnest one, which is a solid ?maple? cost ~HK$250, which translates to just more than USD$30. If I have the luggage and counter space, I’d have gotten one of these.
The loot. Not all is for me. I have not looked into sharpening methods pros and cons, but got a stone from them just in case. KF1903 (or 1904, I forgot) is apparently their best selling model overseas, with KF1303 following closely behind. Their recommendation is to sharpen both of these cleavers at a 10 degree angle.
ETA: About 40% off from Chefsknivestogo, at least for those two.
