"These G-Fusion steak knives from Wyoming-based New West KnifeWorks 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 handles- hewed from a durable composite called G10 in a range of colors- do their part to imbue the serving of steak with a sense of ceremony."   -The Wall Street Journal
