The perfect gift knife that gives vegetables nightmares.
This signature knife has been a New West classic since its award-winning debut at the nations’ best fine art and craft shows over 25 years ago. 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.

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.
