On December 18th, 2018 - just in time for the last holiday shipments of the year - Chef Kathy Gunst, Resident Chef on NPR's Here & Now, gave New West KnifeWorks a glowing radio review while discussing her "Bests of the Year". Our phones were immediately ringing off the hook and our website could barely handle the attention it was getting. The New West team pulled through and delivered many, many of the "gorgeous...knives [she] turns to again and again" (Gunst) to happy chefs and home cooks across the country. Our knives showed up just in time to be the perfect gift for that foodie friend or family member who is often hard to shop for.
Why do I love these knives? Let me count the ways.
First of all, they are gorgeous: The Technicolor fiberglass handles are simply stunning. Second (and more important) is the way these knives feel in your hand. Chopping, slicing, dicing — it all feels like a breeze. They're not too heavy and not too light. Made of steel right here in the USA, they are the knives I turn to over and over again.
Excerpt from the Original Interview
Kathy: It depends how much you do. If you ask my husband, he says you only need one. I have a lot of knives. I like to peel tomatoes with a certain knife, I like to cut the peel off of oranges and grapefruits, anyway -- don't get me started. I am a big fan of these knives.
