Cover Story in Napa Valley Life: "The 'best' knife in the world..."

That's right - New West Knives are on the cover of Napa Valley Life's Food & Wine Issue!

In the heart of Napa Valley, St. Helena is home to the first shop New West opened outside of our Jackson Hole HQ. As a destination for culinary greatness, excellent wine, and good living, it seemed like the perfect place to open a shop focused on the best American-made culinary tools.

This 4-page spread goes on to share a brief history of New West KnifeWorks and how our key players have shaped the company. 

Nanette and Valentine Humer are Napa Valley foodies all the way. Last Christmas, Nanette saw a knife in the New York Times which she bought for her husband because she wanted to give him the “best” knife in the world. Shortly after to her delight, she learned the knife company, New West KnifeWorks (NWKW) had recently opened a retail shop in St. Helena.
Napa Valley is arguably the food and wine mecca of the United States. So, when New West KnifeWorks decided to expand from their Jackson Hole, Wyoming location, St. Helena was their obvious second choice.

“It’s my favorite knife,” said Valentine. “I can cut a lemon razor-thin and you can’t do that with any other knife.  It’s perfect.”
