The Mini-Mini Set: Good things come in small packages.
Now available in richly-textured Ironwood, the Mini-Chopper and Mini-Paring knives are very unique. These knives are designed to round out one's knife set. Perfect for cutting cheese or chopping basil, the Mini Chopper has a mini santoku design. As for the Mini Paring, deveining shrimp, detailed trimming, or decorating pastries has never been easier.
The Mini-Chopper: paring precision plus cutting board power.
Are these paring knives on steroids or chef knives with an inferiority complex? The Mini Chopper is a beautiful little workhorse that is small enough to hold in the hand for precision paring jobs but holds its own on the cutting board chopping vegetables and slicing chicken breasts.

**Please note: this is a natural material and each handle will have unique grain patterns**
As the first major addition to our chef knife collection since switching to G10 handles for our "G-Fusion" line, New West KnifeWorks is proud to offer our line of Desert Ironwood S35VN chef knives. After months of testing various hardwoods and laminate woods for durability, water resistance, and overall look and feel, the richly textured desert ironwood rose to the top.
Because desert ironwood grows in such water-depleted environments, its grain structure is incredibly dense (so dense that it sinks in water), which leads it to have incredible strength and durability. In fact - this wood is so hard that it takes more material and time for our production team to get the scales shaped into New West' smooth and ergonomic knife handles.
To care for this material, we recommend avoiding harsh soaps or solvents on the handle (a little dish soap now and then is fine). The deep colors and rich shine quickly come back to life with a bit of mineral oil applied with a rag. No lacquer or sealant is applied to the ironwood, so it will readily absorb the oil and look shiny and new all over again.
