whats the meaning of "A man with a hammer in a world of china"? I'm watching "iBoy", And there's a dialogue from Elmen- "Cutz is a man with a hammer in a world of china. Know what I mean?" So can I help with the meaning and it's uses in several sentences.

Here, "china" means porcelain plates and cups. They're delicate, brittle and fragile. Imagine what a hammer could do to all that. It's a similar image to the simile, "like a bull in a china shop". The phrase you've found is not standard at all.
