About Our Company


New West KnifeWorks makes knives like we cook. We use the best ingredients and prepare them with the patient hands of an artist. Our aim is to bring more joy to everyday chores by making tools that are as beautiful as they are useful.

Corey Milligan moved to Jackson Hole to pursue the good life. To earn a living while enjoying the outdoors, he worked as a line cook in local restaurants. His initial interest in cutlery came from the desire to make a knife that would better express his love of cooking. New West KnifeWorks was born out of that passion, a passion which continues to motivate us today. We celebrate the dignity of work and believe the tools we use are an expression of who we are.
