Seems like most restaurants have gone up 30 to 50 percent in price in four years.

That’s why this cleaver looks so new


Haterbait_band t1_ja4usbe wrote

Oh that’s just because of Covid and Ukraine. That’s where meat is produced, presumably, so you understand. Gas prices too. Can’t have a nice proxy war with Russia if you tax payers aren’t getting robbed every time you go out, right?

It was dulled but full on metal.


ThatGirlOverThere9 t1_ja1uz40 wrote

I mean functionally theyre easy to make just cut out the cleaver shape put a simple cosmetic only bevel, laser engrave the menu and then put on a basic handle and youve got it. The pain is if they want to update the menu its a lot harder and more expensive and time consuming than traditional menus. But hey youre posting it here so the gimmick is paying off as intended.


Ceico_ t1_ja2nprh wrote

I don't think that's engraved.. more like sublimation print, that is easy to polish off and reprint.

The machinery for it is relatively affordable:

If you look closely on the right bottom part you can see that it’s a sticker.

I remember a Cork N Cleaver in my town back in the 1980’s, is this the same chain/restaurant? I haven’t heard that name for years

I suggest that you hack the giant scarab beetle sitting across from you to pieces, and then see if you’re still feeling hungry.

Looks like plastic to me man, the colour and especially when you zoom in to the edges, nice try though.


peppercupp t1_ja1numi wrote

I've been there before, those fuckers are real and VERY heavy. Dulled edges, but makes a neat conversation piece.

Obviously it wasn’t so obvious


[deleted] t1_ja3azy7 wrote

I think it’s quite obvious actually and you’re just stupid.


WatermelonWithAFlute t1_ja728pt wrote

the ability to show off sarcasm over text form is an ability many possess but with varied levels of skill, and i do genuinely believe you may well possess it (this is not sarcasm), but in this instance it was not as well conveyed as you may believe. The response you gave in turn was also unnecessarily rude. Unless, of course, that was also intended to be sarcastic.


WhiteHawk77 t1_ja1qa4o wrote

Then it’s plastic over metal, as that would be a lawsuit waiting to happen, it looks exactly like cheap silver plastic looks that’s made to look like metal, and what stupid place of business hands out even dulled cleavers to the general public with kids around, that thing even with a dulled edge can crack skulls and break hands and fingers, and I know regular cutlery can do some damage too but it doesn’t have the mass this would if it was metal.


No_Dragonfly5191 t1_ja2xoug wrote

First, they are real. Second, a brick or medium sized rock can crack skulls and break hands and fingers as well.


WatermelonWithAFlute t1_ja72f9q wrote

While true, and you do acknowledge regular cutlery as being dangerous but with less mass, this is also still irrelevant because if a kid was to wave around a knife or something they could well hurt someone as easily as they could if they decided to try and wield the (dull) menu cleaver. This is assuming anyone actually let that occur, of course. At least, without supervision.


tech16 t1_ja1slr0 wrote

OP said it is metal, I'm sure they can tell the difference between metal and plastic by the weight alone.


WhiteHawk77 t1_ja1sxn2 wrote

Didn’t read my last post did you.

Oh sorry. When I read something foolish I tend to ignore the rest. My mistake on that one.

I like the 4 for $10 roast beef just fine. If I want what's on that menu, I just wait until New York strip or top sirloin go on sale at the local grocery store, reverse sear in the oven, finish on a cast iron skillet, boom, as good if not better than what's on that menu.

Holy fuck, that's expensive. Let me guess, they still want you to tip?


Haterbait_band t1_ja4vk3p wrote

Based upon the total food and drink cost, no less. So the waiter at this restaurant feels entitled to more tips than the waiter at Applebee’s just because the menu options were priced higher. Same amount of work, but one gets more money. Tipping culture!

Probably asked and answered already, but I don’t feel like trudging through all the comments. Was it sharp or dull?

The apostrophe in their logo is backwards.

It makes it read like “Corking Cleaver” rather than “Cork and Cleaver.” Look down at the salmon to see it placed correctly.

How do they change the menu or prices


Haterbait_band t1_ja4vww1 wrote

Buy new cleavers and just raise prices on everything so the owners don’t lose any money. Same as any business. Always protect the investors and executives while passing along the consequences of poor business management to the customer. They’ll complain, but they’ll still pay.

Probably in some tourist area, or near an airport or something. Definitely not near a Costco. Although, to be fair, people are really bad with money. They’ll pay a lot of extra for convenience. Oh, and being in the regressive US which still grasps on to tipping culture, go ahead and just add 20% more to each menu item!

Haterbait_band t1_ja4wsop wrote

Greed. Simple as that. The restaurant owner(s) just want more money so they make the menu items more costly. It’s a great time to do it too, since we can blame Covid or Ukraine and customers are begrudgingly understanding, even if those things have no actual effect of their business.

Looking at their online menu. $23 is a little high for "chopped steak." Hell, I made it at home tonight using Costco ground beef, gravy packets and Aldi white onion. My stepdaughter, a little slip of a thing, had 2/3 lbs to herself.
