Editor’s Picks: Famous Foodie Faves

We make our knives to thrive under the harsh demands of the professional kitchen. So, nothing makes us happier than when America’s top chef’s, editors, and test kitchen directors use them on their cutting boards. We filled this gift guide with the favorites of our most famous fans.

The Superbread

Food Network star and seasoned chef, Alex Guarneschelli, got her small screen debut as a fierce competitor on Iron Chef. While an Iron Chef contestant, she opened up her chef bag to show viewers her prized culinary tools - there were two New West Knives in there! While holding up a New West KnifeWorks 9" Superbread, she shared:

"My favorite knife, this is a serrated knife that I like to use...this could literally cut through the hood of a car if need be, with these kind of challenges, you never know..." - Iron Chef Alex Guarneschelli

The 9” Chef

Hunter Lewis, managing editor of Food & Wine and Cooking Light, had some gracious words about us and our 9" Chef:

"A CUT ABOVE" The knife I'm honing with a steel is from New West KnifeWorks, A Jackson, Wyoming, firm that makes perfectly balanced tools. Of all my knives I own, this is my best friend in the kitchen."

The Petty

"It’s the champion of the all-around: Agile enough to make delicate work of veggies and sturdy enough to bone-out a chicken. It strikes the perfect balance between power and grace. Your best friend might have the one-up when it comes to finding new restaurants, but this knife will prove just how well-informed (and thoughtful) a friend you really are. Sharp, huh?"

- Amiel Stanek, Bon Appetit

The Chopper

"it's American made, it's made from American steel, but it feels so good in your hand, that when you are chopping... I really love to chop, it's something that I get into the Zen of... and I have to say, these knives out of Wyoming are really a joy in my kitchen."

-Kathy Gunst, NPR's Here and Now 

The Chris Kidder Special

At Bon Appetit the word is out about our high-performance chef knives!

Editor, Chris Morocco, shared his enthusiasm for our 12" Chris Kidder Chef super-knife on Instagram, saying it's a "VERY BIG, VERY AWESOME KNIFE"!

Steak Knives

"These G-Fusion steak knives...glide through rib-eye steaks as if they’re butter. The serrated edge also stays sharp for far longer than a straight blade would. The striking their part to imbue the serving of steak with a sense of ceremony."

 The Off Duty 50, Wall Street Journal

Fillet Knife

S35VN Steel Fillet Knife was featured in the May 2020 issue of Food & Wine as a top Fish Butchering Tool for filleting salmon.

"The thin and flexible blade is designed to match the curve of a fish." - Justin Chapple, Food & Wine


The vibrant colors of the G-Fusion line remind us that making nourishing, delicious food for those we love is an expression of who we are. We make tools to be an extension of the hand of the culinary artist.


Don’t be fooled by the pretty colors, these handles are bombproof. Originally developed for the motherboard of a computer, this fiberglass laminate is extremely tough, feels good in the hand, and thrives in the hot and humid environment of a professional kitchen.


S35VN is the best steel available for kitchen use. Sharpness, edge-holding, stain-resistance, toughness: the powder metal process lets us pack in more carbon and special alloys with none of the tradeoffs of other high-carbon blades.


From top test kitchens like Bon Appetit and Food & Wine to Michelin star restaurants and your local favorite bistro, New West KnifeWorks is professionally tested and approved. “My Best Friend in the Kitchen.” Hunter Lewis, Editor in Chief, Food & Wine Magazine.


For those who prefer the natural look and feel of a wooden handle, we tested all the top candidates: Desert Ironwood rose to the top. One of the hardest woods on Earth, it makes a perfect companion in the kitchen for the cutting edge blade.


A knife is an extension of the hand, which is why all of our knife handles are hand-finished in the USA. We don’t have an assembly line, each knife is taken through the entire knife-making process by one expert maker to ensure the quality of every blade.


Traditional steel selection always involved trade-offs: too sharp and it becomes brittle, too much stain-resistance makes it cut like a butter knife, too tough and you can’t sharpen it yourself. S35VN steel gives our blades all the good qualities with none of the bad.


The craftsmanship of our knives is backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee. We also offer free sharpening and service for all of our knives by mail or through our retail shops.
