I would like to create an entirely unique context menu for a specific file type. I have added all the items I'd like to add to the context menu, but I don't know how to remove existing ones. I'd like to remove entries like "Cut," "Copy," etc., if possible. I don't, however, want to change the context menu items for * (all files).

That's not possible. Cut & Copy are part of Windows shell.
