The Bar Keeper Set Ironwood

The Bar Keeper Set in Ironwood: Slice and garnish with flourish
Whether a waistcoat-wearing bar professional or a slightly obsessive home cocktail chef, this set will make easy work of every garnish and slice. The Mini Chopper is a bit wider than a paring knife, giving perfect leverage for that orange peel tongue on your Negroni or for whittling a lemon twist. The Deli Knife's serrated edge makes it an unstoppable force for citrus wedges, prepping limes for Margaritas, or cleaning up a celery stalk for a Bloody Mary.

The Deli: Sandwich lovers love this
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.

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.

Desert Ironwood
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's 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.
Each chef knife comes in an embossed leather sheath.
