Sandwich lovers love this.
From the bread to all the goodies inside, the Deli is designed for the sandwich connoisseur. Blast out BLTs and Reubens in no time flat. No more crooked or crumbly bagels, no more mutilation of tomatoes- the proprietary serration slices fruits and veggies properly every time.

Allergic to sharpening? This one's for you.
Everyone has someone in their life whose butter knives are the sharpest in the drawer. Chances are, these folks have lost their joy for cooking as chores like chopping veggies turn to onerous half-hour workouts over brutalized carrot bits. Well, this knife is for them. The serrated edge keeps slicing for a very, very, very long time. And after a decade or so if it gets dull, they can send it back for free to be re-sharpened for the next decade.

S35VN: America's best steel
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.

Desert Ironwood
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's 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.

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