    #11 cleaver?

    Just curious if anyone knows if this style of cleaver is made for a certain task or just a difference style intended for the same purpose (regional perhaps?)

    CCK make them in heaps of sizes and Sugimoto make one too.

    Cheers in advance,

    Looks like it's for portioning large primal cuts of protein.

    A CCK in that style of the largest available size is on my list mainly for the above reason.

    iirc I saw a similar thing in Aritsugu (Kyoto), it was massive, had (a really black) kuro-uchi finish and polished edge. To say it looked menacing would be an understatement.

    There are several variations in China but basically it is used as a larger butcher knife. Mostly pork but also large fish, some beef, goats, sheep etc. Brought a Chinese model home from my last trip there.
