The switch hitter: paring precision plus cutting board power.
Are these paring knives on steroids or chef knives with an inferiority complex? The Mini Chopper is a beautiful little workhorse that is small enough to hold in the hand for precision paring jobs but holds its own on the cutting board chopping vegetables and slicing chicken breasts.
Cheese plate queen by day, garlic ninja by night.
The Mini Chopper is the perfect complement to any cheese and charcuterie plate, adding a touch of elegance while effortlessly getting the job done. But back in the kitchen, this beauty is all business-- the flat blade's plentiful width and short, agile length are ideal for smashing and mincing garlic, chopping and scooping onions, and mincing herbs.
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.
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.
