The CCK Butcherís knife is a mean blade. It weighs in at well over 1 pound and measures a stout 5.4mm at the heel. Half of the carbon steel blade is finished with a kurouchi coating. This certainly adds a rustic and somewhat rugged look to this tough blade. But looks are not what this knife is all about. This knife is the tool of choice for breaking down small to large carcasses of meat. Deboning, filleting and even slicing are its raison d'Ítre.

It is made from a medium carbon steel that will take a pretty decent edge and keep it through the task at hand. The steel is somewhat soft so it reduces the risk of chipping an edge when cutting through bone or heavy cartilage. Of course the steel will corrode or rust if not dried thoroughly after use.

The handle is a basic wooden round profile. It does itís job! Which is what this knife is all about. Doing itís job of butchery in an efficient and easy way at a price that is very affordable.

    This will impress anyone who enjoys using knives-- sturdy, well-balanced, has the right edge for the job. A quick polish and light acid etch to the "bare steel" portion of the blade revealed a laminated high-carbon edge, and lines of clouding and color-change from quenching and annealing above it, just like you'd see on a sword. So on these blades, the edge portion is noticeably harder than the area behind it, but not so hard that you risk chipping on bone. The body of the blade looks hammer-forged, not stamped or drop-forged so it should be fully stress-relieved and plenty strong. Price is quite fair considering what goes into these things. Blade shape is tried-and-true, you see almost the same thing on some short swords from the southern Philippines, and on cooking knives from medieval Europe. Butcher-block oil, or olive oil, will go a long way in maintaining the tropical hardwood handle, and to keep moisture out of the end where the blade tang is hammered over, a dab of epoxy cement in the area will do the trick. (I still would wash this and other traditional Asian knives by hand, though, and not trust the dishwasher).

    It's a big heavy beast but very tough and fun to use. Edge retention is good for the price. I got it rehandled and it's one of my favorite knives now.

    This is a great knife. Able to easily and quickly accomplish any butchering task I put it through. The steel is great. The blade is hefty and keeps an edge.

    This is a great knife for the price. I thinned the blade a bit to suit it more for my tastes. I use it for chickens, ducks, legs of pig and lamb... pretty much everything. It is great when combined with the CCK big rhino also found on this site. After thinning the edge, I can get a razor edge on it which makes it ideal for breaking down large primal cuts. This has replaced my cimeter.

    It's a fun knife that finally caused me to break down and get a mag strip since it wouldn't fit anywhere else. My roommates call it the Hobbit Sword and keep shaving their chest hair with it.

    I absolutely love this knife, I'll admit I bought it as a luxury item but once I had a hold of it, I didn't want to put it down. For any of you that are familiar with CCK products, you will love this knife. It's a little large, a little crude, but absolutely amazing.
