“Knife Art”- Fine Cooking
This perfect "gift" knife gives vegetables nightmares.
This signature knife has been a New West classic since its award-winning debut on the fine arts and crafts circuit. While vegetables have nightmares about this chopping champion, you'll have sweet dreams about making salads and salsa. A mid-sized knife that makes a large-sized impact on the cutting board.
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:
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.
