Do y’all remember when I talked about New West KnifeWorks last? I was making my MIL’s squash goulash and slicing up the squash with them. Let me tell you, these are beautiful knives and MAN are super sharp!! And if the title didn’t get your attention, I want to stress “Made in the USA” because I know that sustainability and buying things made here in our homeland is very important to many of you.
New West KnifeWorks recently moved manufacturing from Japan to Shelburne Falls, Massachussetts. Prior to the move, the handle materials were produced in Vermont, shipped to Japan, and the finished product shipped to Wyoming. Now, the ‘Fusionwood’ is sustainably harvested and crafted in Vermont, then shipped 103 miles to Shelburne Falls. The move has reduced New West’s carbon footprint by 90%.
I personally think it’s an awesome move for New West KnifeWorks and I don’t know about you, but I love buying things that are made here in our great USA! If you wanna a chance at winning a knife, scroll on down for my giveaway or sign up for the New West KnifeWorks newsletter before May 25th and you’ll be entered.
You know what I love about this Santoku knife? First of all, the craftsmanship of the handle is just beautiful. I love seeing all the rich colors blend together to make this gorgeous “rainbow” colored handle. And talk about sharp….good lord these knives are sharp. I always find slicing rings of onions difficult because no knife is ever sharp enough but all my New West KnifeWorks knives have handled the task extremely well. Truett wanted an orange so I cut up one for him. That was like slicing butter.
Since my husband often builds bits, buckles, and spurs with steel, I’ve learned the differences between good and great steel. These are outstanding. You can see obvious visual differences when comparing the blade of this knife to other brands and there is absolutely no contest. New West KnifeWorks wins hands down.
