The Mini Chopper

Are these paring knives on steroids or chef knives with an inferiority complex? New West's Mini Chopper is a beautiful, little workhorse. It handles all the chopping and dicing that our bigger Chopper knife does, but with a easier grip for small hands. Also makes an excellent knife for your meat and cheese board for guests.

"It is great to sit out with a plate of gourmet, artisan cheese." - Corey Milligan, New West KnifeWorks owner

"Want that garlic to 'liquify' in the pan like Paulie Sorvino's character in Goodfella's? You need the Mini Chopper." - Anthony Campolattaro NWKW's Sales and Marketing Guru.

"Manhattan style, Brooklyn tough." Mike Milligan, NWKW Big Apple rep.

Highly-skilled hands and modern precision tools work in concert to create a new standard in quality and workmanship.
