Chinese Cleavers are the Asian version of the French chef knife. They are not used for chopping bone, they are slicers and are treated and used like a chef knife. The Chinese have used the cleaver since the beginning of time and the Japanese combined it with their metallurgy and created some really nice cleavers of their own.

Chan Chi Kee (also known as CCK) are a big name in Chinese Cleavers. They also make a wide variety of kitchen tools and utensils for professional and home cooks. The Liíl Rhino Cleaver gets its name from looking like the small horn on a rhinoceros. It is a perfect tool for chopping things like herbs and vegetables. It's also a good choice for breaking down primal cuts of meats. With its pointed tip and rounded front end the Liíl Rhino also loves to get between bones or remove skin. The blade is made from carbon steel, so extra care is required to prevent rusting and corrosion. Keep it dry and clean and you will not have problems. This is one fun knife that is also high in function and has great appeal. *Finish sharpening service not available for this knife.

    4  Solid Knife, great Value, May 7, 2018
    Posted By: Steve

    Been wanting one of these for a few years now ever since seeing it on here. Got one about 3 months ago, and has been a solid addition to my bag. Came in pretty sharp, I got it sharper. Steel is easy to work with on my stones (1k/6k)

    Fit and finish leaves something to be desired but it cost 50 so I can really be concerned. Belly of the blade does not end up flush, which results in some accordion cuts when chopping. With a few more sharpens I will have that even, but a little disappointing OOTB. Pretty reactive, be on top of keeping it clean.

    Fun knife, easy to sharpen, and everyone in the kitchen thinks its cool.

    5  Awesome knife, April 16, 2018

    Surprisingly sharp out of the box. Mine weighs a little over 8oz but feels pretty light. Spines and choil pretty well for the price point. All it needs it's a saya now.

    5  I love my Li'l Rhino!!!, March 16, 2018
    Posted By: Tom Dickinson - verified customer

    This is one of the best knife purchases that I have ever made in my life. It was super sharp and I use it to cut onions and it worked incredible well. That and my students think it's cool. Will buy another one.

    Posted By: Nicholas D Traina - verified customer

    This knife is truly an incredible value. It's versatile, fits well in the hand, and takes a nice edge. I regularly touch up the edge with my Spyderco Sharpmaker. I mostly use it for vegetable prep, and it excels at that. I always add a little dab of Camellia oil after using it. The handle is admittedly a little plain looking. While the handle is comfortable and purpose built, I wish that they could improve on it a bit. All in all, its great.

    Posted By: James F - verified customer

    Didn't come particularly sharp, but took a great edge. It gets as sharp as knives I've paid hundreds for an performs just as well. After a shift and a lot of abuse it's kept a solid edge. A few of my coworkers want one too after using it too.My only complaint is the unfinished wooden handle.

    5  Really Fun, Super Versatile, July 28, 2017
    Posted By: Sean Wood - verified customer

    Bought the knife to use for an at home protein prep knife. Great for taking apart chickens and small game but at the same time totally suitable for s quick vegetable chop and has a great edge. The pointed tip is really good for getting into small areas and the knife itself has kept a great look to it without any special care other than wiping after use. Really great first cleaver experience!

    5  The Perfect Gift!, January 4, 2017
    Posted By: Amaya - verified customer

    I bought this knife as a Christmas present for my best friend. He's a chef that's moving up in the world of food, and training like a madman at 2 different kitchens. Both kitchens are small, so I selected this knife for it's versatility. What was surprising was how much went beyond the call of duty. I ordered the knife late before Christmas, and it got to my friend on Christmas Eve. I was blown away that it made it there so fast! He opened it and was stunned at how rustic but sophisticated the blade looked. Then he sat and honed the knife with some ceramic, and played with some apples to get a feel for the blade. He's in love with it and says it will probably quickly become his favorite knife. He described the cleaver as light weight and easy to yield, yet heavy enough to "do some damage". I'm not a chef so I have no idea what the technical description or use would be for something like this. But he seemed extremely pleasedwhich is all that matters to me. Thank you for being so awesome. Maybe I'll order myself one of these bad boys for cooking on the go here in Europe :)

    4  This is a fun little knife, June 16, 2016
    Posted By: Ben - verified customer

    I bought this just to have something to mess around with. It's relatively sharp out of the box, but I touched it up a bit and it took a mean edge. the fit a finish are good, but utilitarian. It's lighter then it looks, and get quite thin at the edge. Over all, I'm rather happy I bought this, and would definitly suggest it.

    5  Great little* cleaver, July 28, 2015
    Posted By: Matt - verified customer

    Just got this knife in today and I'm already in love with it. It's very rough-'n'-tumble in terms of finish, but feels so practical in-handespecially for my small kitchen workspace. I do a lot of my vegetable and protein prep on a narrow kitchen cart wedged up next to my fridge, and where my traditional, boxy Chinese cleaver doesn't always have the room to maneuver there, this knife feels almost compact because of its rounded edge. It speeds through onions with a rocking slice and I'm looking forward to putting it through its paces.

    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.

    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.

    Posted By: Ken Schwartz - verified customer

    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.---Ken
