The Ironwood Fillet Knife

Our S35VN powder metal is the highest performance steel ever used to make a fillet knife. Designed for both the avid outdoor enthusiast and professional chef, our new fillet knife has exceeded all of our expectations as America's premium cutlery boutique. The thin blade is seven inches long and has a multi-stepped taper to create the perfect amount of flex. The geometry of this blade's shape is designed to match perfectly to the curve of a fish, and long enough to reach the deep bones of any animal. Each long slicing stroke is stabilized by the full tang.

Desert Ironwood

**Please note: this is a natural material and each handle will have unique grain patterns**

As the first major addition to our chef knife collection since switching to G10 handles for our "G-Fusion" line, New West KnifeWorks is proud to offer our line of Desert Ironwood S35VN chef knives. After months of testing various hardwoods and laminate woods for durability, water resistance, and overall look and feel, the richly textured desert ironwood rose to the top.
 
Because desert ironwood grows in such water-depleted environments, its grain structure is incredibly dense (so dense that it sinks in water), which leads it to have incredible strength and durability. In fact - this wood is so hard that it takes more material and time for our production team to get the scales shaped into New West' smooth and ergonomic knife handles.

To care for this material, we recommend avoiding harsh soaps or solvents on the handle (a little dish soap now and then is fine). The deep colors and rich shine quickly come back to life with a bit of mineral oil applied with a rag. No lacquer or sealant is applied to the ironwood, so it will readily absorb the oil and look shiny and new all over again.

Catering to the needs of fisherman and hunters, our fillet knife has been tested by some of our friends in the kitchen and outfitting industries. From the walleye of South Dakota to the big game of the Wyoming frontier, our fillet knife is field-tried and tested in the Rocky Mountain West.
