The Paring Knife
"America's Best" - Cooking Light
The search for the perfect paring knife is over. And for those who only use a paring knife, this is the only one you will need in your kitchen. Unlike many paring knives which are very "pointy" and dig into fruit and vegetables, the G-Fusion paring knife has a modified Drop Point Design. This results in a more forgiving knife when you are coreing an apple or removing the eyes from potatoes. Once you get used to this unique shape, you will love it. But don't assume that just because the blade is small, the handle should be dinky too. Our paring knife handle is a full four inches, which lends it firm agility in the hand.
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.
**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.
