When we first saw the knives provided to us from New West KnifeWorks, we spent several minutes admiring the craftsmanship. The hardwood veneers used for the handles are richly colored with dye and fused together with engineering-grade resin. With all materials made in America and steel blades cut and ground by American craftsman, we feel like we have a piece of American art in our kitchen. The materials used to make the fusionwood handles are produced in Vermont and are assembled, shaped, and finished by hand in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts.
Sharp and strong, yet very beautiful!
Each knife also comes with a beautiful leather sheath.
The high-carbon chromium steel blade is strong, durable, and designed for easy sharpening. The tang extends into the full length of the handle. This is a feature that we look for on any knife – both in the kitchen and for outdoor use – because it ensures balance and control as well as provides a stronger knife. In addition to holding an edge, their knives have a Rockwell Hardness of 59-60. You can see in the video that the single piece of steel is designed to be strong and will withstand bending.
With a lifetime guarantee for non-commercial use and free sharpening, you will want to invest in this line of culinary instruments. You may also want to consider their line of coordinating utensils, cutting boards, and knife magnets. If you’re not sure where to start with building your kitchen knife set, Corey Milligan made a helpful video that explains the function of each New West KnifeWorks knife.
