Making chopping easy


A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by New West Knifeworks to review one of their knives. I had never heard of them before, but after looking at the products on their website I had to say yes. They didn’t only look functional but also beautiful.

Yesterday I received a box that contained the Fusionwood  Chopper Knife right before I started making dinner and I immediately put it to work. I have to say that it did an amazing job chopping the jalapeños, onions and garlic that I used for dinner. The beautiful hardwood venner handle was only the first thing I liked about this knife. The sharp high-carbon stainless steel blade is very well tuned, easy to handle and light. These characteristics make this knife an excellent addition in any kitchen. I do agree with their website when they say that:

For those of us who love fine food, cooking is an art, and a quality knife is the artist’s brush. At New West Knifeworks, we make our chef knives like we cook; we use the finest quality ingredients and prepare them with the patient hands of an artist. Our chef knives are finely tuned, quality instruments, a fusion of form and function.

If you can get your hands (literally) on one of these beauties, don’t hesitate. They are a work of art, and this is coming from someone who is not very comfortable talking about sharp objects.

¡Buen provecho!



  • That is a beautiful knife. I’ve become obsessed with good knives the last few years. Thanks for the link.

  • My brother in-law helped me to see the light on using a really good knife. Ignorance was bliss. Now I can’t stand it if I don’t have one to chop with. This one looks like a dream.

  • Looking at the website, the serrated bread knife looks awesome!

  • Ben my very favorite is their bread knife but I very much enjoy both the choppers I have. Their knives are worth the money!

  • I’m still waiting from my pair of bob kramers..july will be 2 years on the waiting list
