Old West on the Cutting Edge
A nod to our Jackson Hole roots that combines a hefty, Western design with elite steel. Serve up gourmet grub at camp with a clip-point blade that’ll make a grizzly (or sous chef) think twice about sticking their nose in your skillet. 

James Beard meets Jim Bowie
While many of our knives are designed for culinary samurai this one is for the kitchen cowboy. As the name implies, it’s all Western. Japanese blade-making favors light-weight, super-sharp blades for agile slicing. The Western Chef is about heft and power, sporting a heavy, almost cleaver-width blade for hacking, chopping, and dicing. Given the choice, if your hands itch for a two-handed broadsword rather than a rapier-- look no further- this knife is for you. Keep it in your knife roll or wear it on your chaps, the Western Chef will have you ready for rodeo when things get Western in your kitchen.  

America's Best
Like cooking, making knives depends on using the best ingredients. The G-Fusion line features the highest performing knife steel on the market-- S35VN "Powder Metal" steel. This high carbon, alloyed steel has it all: elite sharpness, toughness, edge-holding, stain resistance, and sharpenability. G-Fusion knives are made in the US with American steel and backed by a lifetime guarantee.

G-Fusion handles are made with G10: an aerospace-grade, fiberglass epoxy composite material that is virtually bomb-proof. New West developed unique G10 color palettes to enhance the beauty of the tool and inspire kitchen creativity.
