Charcuterie champ or apex Granny knife.
“Growing up in the Midwest, all the mom’s I knew used a paring knife for everything. They’d even use it to carve the turkey at Thanksgiving. I made this knife for them — it holds its own chopping vegetables and prepping meats.” Corey Milligan, Founder New West Knifeworks. 

Paring knives are incredibly inefficient on the cutting board, as they don’t leave room for your knuckles — you can only cut with the tip. There are some folks (many a Midwestern granny, for example) who just aren’t comfortable with a larger knife. The Mini Chopper performs many of the tasks of a chef knife with the manageable length of a paring knife. The wide blade of the Mini Chopper allows for full contact of the edge with the cutting board.

Also, the Mini Chopper is the perfect complement to any cheese and charcuterie plate, adding a touch of elegance while effortlessly getting the job done. The sharp edge can cut the hardest cheese or salumi. The wide blade can generously spread the holiday cheese log. The Mini Chopper is the essential knife for some and a fabulous “showing off” on the cheese plate for all.

Use & Care

  • Hand wash with warm soapy water and hand dry for maximum edge retention and stain resistance. For safety and edge protection, store dry knives in their leather sheath, in a wood block, or on a magnet designed to hold knives. For a full tune-up: free lifetime sharpening.
  • Do not put in the dishwasher - this will dull the knife.
  • For edge retention, cut only on wood or softer plastic cutting boards.
  • As needed, apply a light coat of mineral oil to the handle with a soft cloth to enhance vibrance.

The New West Difference

Unmatched Performance

We use CPM S35VN particle metallurgy steel which has the best combination of sharpness, toughness, edge-holding, stain resistance, and sharpenability on the market.

G-Fusion Handle

G10 is an aerospace-grade, fiberglass-epoxy composite material that is virtually indestructible. We developed unique color palettes to inspire creativity in the kitchen.

American Made

Every knife we make is crafted from start to finish by an individual maker in the Teton Mountains using American steel and backed by a lifetime guarantee.


Sustainably sourced, richly textured desert ironwood grows in Arizona where the water-depleted environment creates a grain structure so dense that it sinks in water. The extreme density of ironwood makes it a strong and durable choice of handle material.
