The Rhino Chop, a Uniquely Designed Knife for Precise Chopping of Vegetables and for Meat Preparation

Laurence Segal has created a uniquely designed chopping knife, particularly good for chopping vegetables easily and exactly. This knife, the Rhino Chop, also works very well to cut a whole chicken into parts, to fillet fish, or to slice meat.

The Rhino Chop combines elements of the
Chinese cleaver (or chef's knife) and of the ulu, an all-purpose knife traditionally used by Inuit (Eskimo) women.

The overall length of the Rhino Chop is most usually 11 1/2 inches, with a blade of 6 1/2 inches. The blade is 2 1/2 inches at the heel of the blade.

The holes in a butterfly pattern on the spine are for those who use the European style of chopping, holding the blade of the knife, and not just the handle. The butterfly holes allow the chef to have a firmer grasp on the knife.

The "relief" holes along the blade edge help keep food from sticking to the blade and lighten the weight of the blade as well. The Rhino chopper is available with or without these relief holes.

Sharp Knives are Key to Culinary Success


My knives are amazingly sharp and stay that way . . .


5.0 star rating - Yelp - I love taking my knives in . . . for sharpening twice a year. My knives are amazingly sharp and stay that way for a long time, and I always learn new things about using and caring for knives. He is a true artisan and takes great pride in his work. 1/17/2014, Gwyn Q., Malibu, CA



Laurence’s expertise in sharpening is outstanding . . . very professional and honest.


5.0 star rating - Yelp - I am going to stay a loyal customer forever! Laurence's expertise in sharpening is outstanding. He is very professional and honest. He cleaned and sharpened several of my knives and made them look just like brand new and sharper then ever. In addition, I brought in my manicure tools and scissors; I was thrilled with the results as well. Laurence also provided me with some helpful tips on how to maintain and care for different sharp items. The prices are very reasonable and the quality of the service is well worth it. Highly recommend!!!! 9/23/2013, Mila M., Beverly Hills


Excellent knife sharpening in Brentwood area of L.A.


Didn’t know what sharp was until I found Laurence at Westside Mobile Knife Sharpening . . .


5.0 star rating - Yelp - I am so pleased with the sharpening service that I feel compelled to write my first review! I thought I knew how to sharpen knives, as I'm a woodworker and always sharpen my wife's kitchen knives. However, I didn't really know what sharp was until I found Laurence at Westside Mobile Knife Sharpening and had him sharpen our knives! The knives he sharpened were much, much better than anything I had ever done!! The knives he sharpened are the sharpest knives I've ever used, and they seem to hold their edge much longer.I have been so pleased with Westside Mobile Knife Sharpening that I have purchased several of Laurence's Rhino Custom Knives!! And, they are not only beautiful, but very functional! 2/19/2013, Jay E., Santa Monica, CA

The Design of the Rhino Chop Has Been Perfected Over Time


The design of the Rhino Chop has evolved over the last ten years or so. An earlier rendition of the design is pictured below. Neither the butterfly holes for grasping the knife nor the "relief" holes for lightening the weight of the blade and for preventing the sliced food from sticking to the blade appeared in this earlier version of the knife.

Laurence Segal, Westside Mobile Knife Sharpening, can craft the handle from the material of your choice, hardwood or acrylic. The exotic hardwoods are generally from tree farms.

If you wish to incorporate particular variations to a
Rhino Chop custom crafted for you, speak to Laurence - he will be happy to make this unique knife unique to you, the ultimate user.
