Acquiring the name from looking like the small horn on a rhinoceros, this little cleaver is great for many jobs. It can be used as a chopper for things like herbs and vegetables. Also, perfect for breaking down primal cuts of meats to get between bones or remove skin. Made from carbon steel, extra care is required to prevent rusting. Okay, I got this one because I thought it was cool looking. Should be tons o' fun!
I picked up one of these years ago on a trip to Hong Kong. The edge wraps around all the way to the tip,giving you a longer edge than a standard cleaver,making it very useful for slicing cuts such as portioning fillets. Also useful for hanging style cuts as the forward edge is in a more comfortable position. Use it by making a cut drawing the blade towards you,flexing the wrist as you approach the tip.

I bought this knife on impulse because it’s cool looking. I find my self using it a lot more than I thought I would,It chops great I also have found that this knife can be held almost like a pen and the forward edge can be used to peel celleriac and large turnips. All around a fun and useful knife the steel easely takes a keen edge.

I bought this as a gift for my son who is a chef. He really enjoyed getting it and also the reaction from others when he showed it to them.
Great knife. Very sharp and easy to handle. Does great with poultry butchering but be careful with larger cuts and large bones. I gave it a pretty serious dent in the blade trying to tackle lamb bones.
