Elegant utility: power meets grace.

The unique qualities of particle metallurgy steel amplify the performance of this blade design.  The remarkable toughness and strength of CPM S35VN steel allows the blade to be ground incredibly thin and perform without bending, breaking or chipping. The super thin blade cuts through food like a scalpel. 

Some eight years ago, when I had just started out as an assistant at a fancy food magazine, I snuck one of their 6” Petty Utility Knives out of a gift package meant for my boss (sorry not sorry!) and it has been an extension of my hand ever since. Prior to that point, I was a stubborn, all-you-need-is-a-chefs-knife kind of cook, but that super-sharp, nimble, not-too-short-not-too-long blade quickly became my perennial kitchen sidekick. Agile enough for delicate tasks like trimming vegetables and sharp enough to fillet fish, it keeps an edge long after my other knives have been sent out for sharpening. All that and made in the US of A? What’s not to like?! I’ve been worshiping at the altar of New West for years, and their blades have been my ace in the hole when I’m seeking out the perfect gift for friends and family who love the kitchen as much as I do.” Amiel Stanek, contributing editor, Bon Appetit.

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

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

American Made

G-Fusion knives are made in the US with 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.
