New West KnifeWorks


I have always heard people talk about how a GOOD knife is all they need in the kitchen. I have drooled, lusted and longed for a GOOD kitchen knife for as long as I can remember. Now, I can finally say I understand what they were talking about *swoon* I was recently sent a New West Knives Fusionwood Chef’s Knife 8″ for review. New West KnifeWorks are high quality, high end works of kitchen art. Calling them JUST a knife simply seems disrespectful. You can choose from the Phoenix line or the Fusionwood line. Choosing is not going to be easy. You’ll see!


There is a lot of hard work that goes into making each and every piece of  their knife art. Highly skilled artisans and modern precision tools work together to create these pieces. The finest materials are sculpted, assembled and hand-finished to ensure every piece is perfect. You can read all about the premium high carbon stainless STEEL {which btw boast a high carbon content – 70% higher than Wusthof }, BLADES that are cut, precision ground & hand finished, & HANDLES that are created from select hardwood veneers that are vacuum impregnated with penetrating dies and resins. You can read all that and more HERE. It’s quite an impressive process & did I mention they have a LIFETIME GUARANTEE?


Even though it’s a sharp piece of culinary technology, this is one SEXY knife! Yes, definitely sexy. I knew from the photo on their website that it was a beautiful knife. What I didn’t know was how STUNNING this knife was until I opened the box. The first thing I saw was a red business card that read: CAUTION EXTREMELY SHARP so I carefully, very carefully, unwrapped the package.


Once I peeled back all the layers, there it was peaking out from a beautiful leather case,  THE handle. It’s truly a work of ART. That alone had me giddy. Mine is the Flamenco (perfect girly handle for a girly girl like myself) Then once I properly admired it, I picked it up. The weight of this knife is impressive. You know you’re holding something unlike any other. Then I GENTLY slid the knife out of his beautiful leather holder and I practically gasped…the BLADE. That shiny beautiful blade. That very SHARP blade. Would you like this baby in action, of course you would…Check out this video & see for yourself…

I was anxious to get in the kitchen and try her out. I immediately, went into the pantry/fridge and pulled out some onions, carrots, celery in preparation to chop chop and chop again. And chop I did! I have never experienced more pleasurable chopping in my life. The blade slid through these vegetables like it was going through water. WATER.


I’m officially ruined! Yes, this knife has ruined me, every other knife in my kitchen might as well start looking for a new home! I am already eyeing the Fusionwood bread knife and the pairing knife! Honey are you listening? LOL

I feel as if I should have some type of beautiful velvet lined box to put her in (I’m going to have to come up with a name for my knife because we’re going to be spending a whole lot of kitchen time together & yes I’m goofy like that) she’s my Mona Lisa of Knives & deserves a special spot to be displayed {when not in use of course, but used she will be}

And I’m thrilled that New West KnifeWorks has GENEROUSLY given me one of their beautiful PETTY FUSIONWOOD knifes to giveaway. How lucky are y’all? Check out the video of this gem…

    I absolutely love the Phoenix Knives (esp. the Granton Santoku). All the knives are gorgeous. A little on the pricey side. They’d empty my bank account! lol
