You know how one of the first things that you’re taught in the kitchen is how important a sharp knife is? You’d think, “a sharp knife?! But I don’t want to cut myself!!” Um, wrong. A sharp knife is SAFER than a dull knife. With that said, who doesn’t love a beautiful knife? Yes, kitchen knives can be works of art too. Just look at the New West KnifeWorks Chopper Knife Fusionwood 2.0 above. Isn’t she purty?

I was given this chopper knife to review and on first thought, I thought it was kind of puny. It’s a lot smaller than the knives I use at home but hey, big things come in small packages, right? Well, that is definitely true with this knife. I realized this wasn’t puny at all. It fit so well in my hand. Why do I have to use an oversized handle and knife to do my chopping? This sliced right through all my vegetables and I love how clean the cut was. Just one swipe of the knife and it was cut and sliced beautifully. I felt like I could chop everything so much faster with the smaller knife. I had more CONTROL over what I was doing (which is great cause I don’t really want to lose a finger at 25 years of age) and I was able to do it swiftly. I went back to read the description of the handle and sure enough, they designed it so that anyone – large or small hands – could use this knife with control.
We’ve found is that all people are not created equal. Small hands large hands and variations in how people prefer to hold a knife in differing cutting situations demand a handle design which accommodates a wide range of anatomical and use variations. The design of our handles gives users the feeling of confidence and control while providing a comfortable grip for long term use.
The knife comes in a beautiful leather holder and the handle is just so smooth and beautifully handcrafted and I love that the steel blade is encased around the handle and goes all the way through it. This is now one of my most used knives in the kitchen – honest!
