Chinese-Japanese Cleaver Number Correspondences

Chinese cleaver chef-knives are known as Chukabocho in the Japanese versions. They are basically the same knives, though significantly refined in the Japanese case. What are the correspondences between the Chinese and Japanese numbers? I have a relatively heavy Chinese #2 cleaver, and wonder what number it is in the Japanese context?
