4 people found this review helpfulHaving the CCK Big Rhino cleaver already, my bag was in desperate need of another behemoth. I bought this knife with the intention of using it as a new chef knife, needless to say it covers that need wonderfully. I removed the barrel handle and steel ferrule because of preference for slightly longer octagonal handles, but I'm fussy beyond words with my knives. Edge out of the box was well, not there. However; after about 20 minutes I had this beast sharpened to 10,000 with a wider edge bevel, in short I sharpened it on Monday when I received my order and now (Saturday) it is still pretty sharp. This knife is a crazy one for rocking, slicing, chopping, everything and then some. You will need to prefer heavy knives for this one to be anything you'll even remotely enjoy, so be warned; you're going to get a workout from this bad boy. Isn't that to be expected of a knife that's 13 inches long and 1/4 inch thick though?!? My head chef is actually thinking of buying one too now because he likes mine so much LOL it's a good influence of a knife and multipurpose is must part of it. Another awesome CCK purchase that has made me a firm lover of Chinese knife smithery :P thanks again CKTG!!!
