For the Professional or Serious Home Chef: The 2pc Sous Chef Pro Set.
The "Sous Chef Pro Set" includes New West's biggest all-purpose chef knife, the Chris Kidder Special, and our most versatile detail work knife, The Petty. A great gift for the Chef or serious home cook who likes to wield a big knife, but likes to keep their kitchen drawers clean and simple. Backed by our Lifetime Guarantee, these American-Made chef knives turn prep work into performance art. Life is too short for dull knives.
The Chris Kidder Special is the ultimate chef knife for those with skill to wield it. At the perfect length for slicing everything from sushi to red meats, soft ripe vegetables or crusty bread, this knife can perform all the chopping, dicing and general purpose work of a chef knife while having the added length to cleanly slice the softest food in one long stroke. Unique design aspects include that the spine does not taper for the first 4" of the knife length which maintains the right amount of stiffness for chopping. Additionally, the wider blade width ensures that Chef's knuckles won't hit the cutting board when chopping.
The Petty is the ultimate kitchen utility knife. This classic Japanese blade shape works great as a peeling, paring, boning and carving knife for vegetables, fruits, herbs and other delicate work. However, it will also take on some of the slicing and dicing jobs of a large chef knife when you don't want to switch back and forth. Professional chefs swear by its versatility. Our Petty was described by Bon Appetit as "the perfect balance of power and grace."
