A host with a hungry crowd needs heavy-duty tools that make cooking look and feel like performance art. The elegant Ironwood-handled 9" Chef Knife and serrated 6" Deli are perfect for bantering with friends and family hanging around the kitchen while keeping up food prep without working up a sweat.
The 9" Chef will charge through veggie chopping and meat slicing, while the Deli will produce gorgeous slices of heirloom tomatoes or slide through the crustiest fresh bread without creating a mess.
The 9" - A Lightsaber for the Kitchen Jedi.
For some, an 8 is too small and a 10 is too big. Either way you slice it, "the 9" hits the sweet spot for many professional and home cooks alike. The elegant, ergonomic design is perfectly balanced so the powder metal blade can do most of the work for you.
"My best friend in the kitchen."
At New West Knifeworks we consider it a privilege to have our knives in the hands of professional chefs. So, when the Editor-in-Chief of Food and Wine Magazine described the 9 as his "best friend in the kitchen", we were over the moon. Another Food and Wine editor said he "felt like it could cut through a rock" if he needed it to. The secret to this knife is the alloyed powder metal steel. This ultra-sharp and durable steel allows for a thin profile that amplifies its sharpness, so it feels like it, not just slices, but glides through food. Wide at the base, generously curved and thin at the tip, -- the 9 is extremely versatile and you will continually discover new jobs for it to do. Learn more about the 9" Chef.
The Deli - Sandwich Lovers Secret Weapon
From the bread to all the goodies inside, the Deli is designed for the sandwich connoisseur. Blast out BLTs and Reubens in no time flat. No more crooked or crumbly bagels, no more mutilation of tomatoes- the proprietary serration slices fruits and veggies properly every time.
Allergic to sharpening? This one's for you.
Everyone has someone in their life whose butter knives are the sharpest in the drawer. Chances are, these folks have lost their joy for cooking as chores like chopping veggies turn to onerous half hour workouts over brutalized carrot bits. Well, this knife is for them. The serrated edge keeps slicing for a very, very, very long time. And after a decade or so if it gets dull, they can send it back for free to be re-sharpened for the next decade.
