East meets New West - the best of both worlds.
This Japanese style blade takes its name from the "three virtues" of slicing, dicing and mincing. An all purpose chef knife, the santoku features a generous width for easy scooping while the moderate length and ergonomic design make it extremely agile on the cutting board.
A revolution in blade design
The Teton Edge Santoku represents a revolution in the history of blade design. The "Edge" replaces the traditional santoku "dimples" with an etched semblance of the Teton Mountain range. As with the dimples, the etching helps the blade slice smoothly through food without sticking- but the Teton Edge does it even better. Traditional machine-grinding the dimples can disrupt and distort the precision of the steel's heat treatment. The proprietary process used to etch the "Edge" enhances the performance while optimizing the steel. The "Teton Edge" celebrates the spirit of Jackson Hole, New West Knifeworks's home, both visually and functionally, redefining the cutting edge of peak performance.
G-Fusion: America's Best
Like cooking, making knives depends on using the best ingredients. The G-Fusion line features the highest performing knife steel on the market-- S35VN "Powder Metal" steel. This high carbon, alloyed steel has it all: elite sharpness, toughness, edge-holding, stain resistance, and sharpenability. G-Fusion knives are made in the US with American steel and backed by a lifetime guarantee.
G-Fusion handles are made with G10: an aerospace-grade, fiberglass epoxy composite material that is virtually bomb-proof. New West developed unique G10 color palettes to enhance the beauty of the tool and inspire kitchen creativity.
