OK so you want to impress your co workers or friends? Well this baby (sic) is the tool for you! Looking more like a leftover prop from a Hammer Horror movie, the CCK Big Rhino Cleaver is........BIG! This monster chopper weighs in at an impressive 2 pounds. It is 6.6mm thick at the heel and has a blade length of 10.25 inches.

The blade is made from a carbon steel alloy and given a rustic kurouchi finish. The steel will rust if not dried and cleaned well. The handle is best described as rustic too! But thatís not why you would buy it. This is a tool for dismembering large animals and pieces of cooked proteins. Ribs, poultry carcasses and other such items will fall prey to this King cleaver. Got a whole pig or deer that needs to be butchered? The CCK Big Rhino Cleaver makes the job easy and quick! This is no one trick pony either as it is also well suited for cutting and chopping smaller items. The blade has a great profile for such tasks and together with the sharp tip it can get into some tight places with ease. The knife will take a screaming sharp edge too. So donít let the size frighten you. This bad boy is a multi tasking chopping machine.

  • Weight: 1 pound, 15 ounces
  • Blade Length: 260 mm (10.25")
  • Overall Length: 375 mm (14.75")

    I picked up a couple at the CCK shop when I was vacationing in Hong Kong. The shop keep there showed me how to use a metal spoon to bang at the blade and hear which one is forged well. I ended up picking up two of these.



    This is the cleaver used by all pork butchers,but only pork butchers in Hong Kong. I went to several markets to see how this chopper is used. They use this from "disassembling" whole hanging pig carcasses to chopping leg bones. I spoke to one butcher and he told me it is rarely used at home because the butcher there will typically do all the prep work that requires this implement. He also told me to be careful if I want to get one for home use as it can easily split a household end grain block. In the butcher shop,they use gigantic round pine blocks,basically a think slap cut from a tree trunk (about 4 ft in diameter,2 ft thick). I could easily see the large bowl shaped hollow carved out on these blocks by this chopper.



    I brought two of these cleavers home I gave one to my relative thinking he could use it to process dear carcasses. I use it at home mainly to split pork shanks and to chop barbecued ribs. It chops pork ribs as if the bones are not there. It never splinters the bones; it "slices" through very cleanly,even lengthwise. I don’t even bother with lining up the blade in between the bones,I just chop away.



    It is a lovely beast.

    I’ve wanted one of these knives since I was a kid watching old Chinese flicks. Now as a chef this thing is huge and makes easy work cutting up whole roasted poultry,ribs,and small roasted pigs if you want bone in that is. Other wise this knife is too heavy for any other use,well except to show off to my chef friends. If your cutting up meat all day long and do not want to worry about chipping your knife this is the one for you,if you want a huge cleaver to show off this is the knife you you,if you want it for other reasons you might want to think about it. But,I gave this knife five stars because this is one of the many knives I’ve always wanted.

    What a monster! F&F are nearly absent,but poultry and ribs are no challenge at all to this behemoth knife. My coworkers laugh when I use this knife on pizza night to cut the pies then peel them onto plates.

    You cannot comprehend how big this thing is until you hold it in your hand. And this is the Medium! There is a Large and an Extra Large! So far I have used it to chop up chicken. Zips right through the bones without splintering them and no nicks in the blade. I recommend this for anyone wanting a meat/bone cleaver.

    Just got my cleaver today. Everyone is right the picture does it no justice. This thing is huge. Just like all CCK cleavers it takes a razor edge. Perfect for showing off and great for my smoked meats. Ribs are like warm butter. this is a BBQ pit masters best friend.

    When I opened this box,I actually felt sick to my stomach,(in a scared/good way). When I’d opened the box,my wife actually backed up from it toward the sink and said,"Oh my god."

    PS: I didn’t know it was possible to ship things as fast as this company did. I’m totally sold on this place after one purchase.

    I love this knife! CNTG calls it the "Big Rhino" but it’s just CCK’s version of a traditional Chinese pork butcher’s knife. It’s intended to be used for butchering pigs; the angled tip is used to cut into the pig as it hangs from above. Even if you don’t use it for that purpose its shape makes it more versatile than a rectangular cleaver.



    As others have mentioned,it’s typical CCK quality: rough appearance,but excellent steel. I’ve had mine for about two years now and I couldn’t be happier. It keeps its edge very well and is easily sharpened. The handle doesn’t look like much but mine is still tight and solid after a great deal of use. I bought it for breaking down meat and bones for making stock and for quartering game when hunting. It excels at both those tasks. I assumed it would be too large and heavy for more delicate work,but I was mistaken. It’s equally at home chopping through large beef bones as it is breaking down a chicken. I bought it for the big jobs but I’ve started using it for general butchering tasks,cubing meat for stew,breaking down chickens,and it’s great for big BBQs as well. The angled point is suprising easy to use for more delicate tasks--it’s more versatile than a big cleaver since it can both chop and do finer work as well.



    I would like to point out that this is more of a very broad "knife" than it is a "cleaver". The blade is very thick at the heel but it tapers to a narrow point,unlike the big bone-chopper cleavers which are thick all the way to the tip of the blade. If you want a big chopper you might prefer the standard rectangular shape which concentrates more weight towards the tip of the blade,but it can’t be beat if you want a great general-purpose butchering tool.
