Chopper changes chores into a joy
For decades, the Chopper has been a customer favorite for holidays, birthdays, graduations, weddings, and housewarming parties. A very manageable size, stout handle, and curved belly are ideal for making things like mirepoix. The unique shape makes it a welcome addition to just about any collection. A beautiful gift that gets used every day is a constant reminder of affection AND a wonderful incentive to fall in love with cooking and a healthier lifestyle. The editors at Paleo Magazine summed it up best in their review of the Chopper:
"Any dedicated home cook knows that a good knife can make the difference between a meal cooked with finesse and enjoyment and one that’s a struggle to get on the table. With Paleo in particular, where fresh food prepared at home is the key to greater health, a good knife is paramount to making such a lifestyle a success." Paleo Magazine

S35VN: Ultimate Knife Steel
Like cooking, making knives depends on using the best ingredients. The Desert Ironwood 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.
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.
