The Deli is essential for any sandwich connoisseur. Blast out a BLT or Reuben in no time flat. Your bagel cuts will never be crooked and crumbly again. What's more, nothing else slices fruits and veggies so effortlessly -- you'll be buying tomatoes by the gross just to cut them up. This is the knife for those of you who hate to sharpen knives. The serrated edge lasts and lasts -- then send it to us for free sharpening when you need it!

"If you have a friend or family member who doesn't really cook and when you go to their house, they don't have a single knife that will cut anything, get them the Deli as a gift. They will always have one knife that will always cut anything." - Corey Milligan (Owner/Retired Journeymen Chef and highly skilled River Guide)

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

**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.
