This perfect "gift" knife gives vegetables nightmares.
This signature knife has been a New West classic since its award-winning debut on the fine arts and crafts circuit. While vegetables have nightmares about this chopping champion, you'll have sweet dreams about making salads and salsa. A mid-size knife that makes a large-size impact on the cutting board.

Chopper changes chores into a joy.
For decades, the Chopper has been a customer favorite for holidays, birthdays, graduations, weddings, and housewarming parties. A very manageable size, stout handle, and curved belly are ideal for making things like mirepoix. The unique shape makes it a welcome addition to just about any collection. A beautiful gift that gets used every day is a constant reminder of affection AND a wonderful incentive to fall in love with cooking and a healthier lifestyle. The editors at Paleo Magazine summed it up best in their review of the Chopper:

"Any dedicated home cook knows that a good knife can make the difference between a meal cooked with finesse and enjoyment and one that’s a struggle to get on the table. With Paleo in particular, where fresh food prepared at home is the key to greater health, a good knife is paramount to making such a lifestyle a success." Paleo Magazine

G-Fusion: 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.
