Design Notes:  

Harvested directly from the local Snake River, these stones are all quartz based variations of granite. Each rock is chosen by hand and then cut using an 18" diamond saw that Erin, New West KnifeWorks' Head of Production, conceived of and built specifically to create our unique Rock Blocks. In this process the saw uses gravity to lower a swing arm into the stone while the stone is rotated. Through much reasearch, we have found no similar saw or process in existence - nor knife blocks that exhibit such power and beauty.

For each piece Erin builds a custom shipping crate by hand to secure your package and its delivery.
