CLOSED New West KnifeWorks {Giveaway}



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?

New West KnifeWorks is a U.S.A. knife company headquartered in Jackson Hole, WY and is owned and operated by Cory Milligan. Years in the kitchen has inspired him to create a functional, durable, and the finest quality knives available anywhere. The knives are the culmination of countless hours of hands on work, intensive study, and the instruction of other knife-makers in the U.S. and Japan.

Highly skilled artisans and modern precision tools work together to create these pieces. Their blades are made with premium high carbon stainless steel and are cut, precision ground & hand finished. The handles that are created from select hardwood veneers that are vacuum impregnated with advanced, penetrating dies and engineering-grade phenolic resins. The handle material they use is produced in Vermont and it’s produced using only sustainably harvested hardwoods. The result is a gorgeous and durable handle that will last a lifetime. They have a LIFETIME GUARANTEE on them!!

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!

New West KnifeWorks wants to give one lucky Table for Two reader the opportunity to win their Chopper Knife Fusionwood 1.0 in Flamenco!

    Silly me, I forgot to write what the most difficult thing is for me to chop! Probably hard winter squashes– I have a difficult time breaking them down into reasonable sized pieces that I can peel.

    I would love this knife. Flamenco! The larger knives feel awkward to me. I need something small enough to feel comfortable with & I know I’d use this one lots. I may have to purchase.

    Anything “hard” like nuts or carrots are difficult for me to chop with my current knives. Always end up with a boo-boo. Maybe having a better chopping knife would help remedy that situation!

    Butternut squash
