New West Knifeworks-Review & Giveaway!

New West Knifeworks Handles introOver the 7 years we’ve been writing professionally about food and cooking, the question we get asked the most is about what products to invest in when it comes to kitchen equipment.  And over and over again, we tell you that a good set of knives will be the best investment you’ll ever make.  Some people are hesitant to purchase professional quality knives because they come with a price tag and they figure a knife is a knife, right?  So wrong.  If you’ve never used professional quality knives, you don’t know what you’re missing until you cut with a high end, razor-sharp blade in your hand.  It makes every task in the kitchen easier, more pleasant, and much more efficient.  I personally eyed these gorgeous knives from New West Knifeworks for a long time, and I have been giddy for months now waiting to show you mine, and also give you a chance to win one of these amazing pieces for yourself!  This is a company, and a brand that we fully stand behind and we’re so excited to introduce them to you if you haven’t heard of them already.

There’s so much I want to tell you besides “look how awesome these are,” but seriously; look how awesome these are!

These are New West Knifework’s Fusionwood 2.0.  These gorgeous knives arrive individually cased in leather (so you can see what a stunning gift a single knife would make.)

Take a look at those handles.  I can’t stop staring at them.  Each one is unique, and a little work of art all in its own.

“Over the years we’ve developed handles which exhibit the highest fusion of beauty, form and function.  We carefully layer dyed veneers of select hardwood which are then impregnated with a proprietary engineering grade resin.  Since the resin is pulled into the wood using a vacuum process, there is no surface treatment to deteriorate. The final handcrafting of the handle creates a seamless interface with the user’s grip that can’t be matched by a machining process.  The finished knife feels like an extension of the hand.” – New West Knifeworks

Kate and I are partial to all things rainbow, and this one here has my heart.

New West Knifeworks produces all of these quality knives right here in the USA (love that.)

“The knives are designed, engineered, and tested by Corey Milligan at New West KnifeWorks. The blades are cut, ground, and finished by the Lamson and Goodnow Company, Americas oldest cutlery manufacturers, in Shelburne Falls, Mass. The 170 year old factory uses modern precision tools in concert with the hand skill of knifemakers who are part of a legacy of artisans that have been making knives for generations.  The factory is run completely on hydro-power generated on site making this the greenest knife you can buy.” -New West Knifeworks

When it comes to the actual blades, these knives are professional quality and made from the finest high-performance steel.  You can read more about the technical aspects that makes these blades so amazing, but I will just say this: they are sharp.  Very sharp.  And strong.  These are the kind of knives that cut through anything effortlessly, and will literally last you a lifetime (no really, they have a guarantee!)

A full knife block set comes with the beautiful knives you see here.  There is one for every use in the kitchen from the tiniest paring knife to the giant Superbread.

In addition to the beautiful knives, they sit in the most gorgeous wood knife block.  There are a variety of styles of blocks, and they all display theses  knives in a way that makes them the talk of the kitchen.  I mean that.  People constantly see mine displayed on  my counter and say, “Wow, are those your knives??”  With knife handles this stunning, it would be a shame to hide them away- I love that these look so awesome sitting out on my counter.

What kitchen items are on YOUR wish list this holiday season??  Leave a comment- you never know, we might just get some ideas for Christmas Giveaways!


Speaking of Christmas Gifts- we dropped a brand new Our Best Bites Olive Oil Co. Flavor Pack on Amazon!  It’s a 4-pack with BACON, GARLIC, LIME, & CHILI.  Hello love. Comes in a gift box- grab it while it’s hot (and in stock!)


  1. What gorgeous knives! I’ve been getting by on a hodgepodge of hand-me-down and moderately priced knives for years, even though I know that I ought to invest in some nice ones. Definitely will be checking these out and maybe putting them on my wishlist for Santa. 🙂

  2. Thank you for writing this review. I’ve been a fan of these knives for about a year now. I covet them, but unfortunately cannot afford them:-( However, they are an item on my “if I win the lottery” wish list:-) Your review was excellent and informative, and the pictures were beautiful! Thanks again.

  3. I mainly have books on my list this year. However, I saw Wilton’s batter scoops in a bbb ad, and I must have them. I haven’t figured out which measuring cup/ice cream scoop/cookie scoop works for the different sizes of muffin pans, which is fine for me. But now that my kids help in the kitchen so much, it would be nice to have an exact measuring tool!!

  4. I was just saying this weekend how I should start selling Cutco so I can get some awesome knoves. Winning a set would be awesome too. Bonus is that they are even prettier then Cutco.

  5. I love the look of these knives. They’re on my dream list. As for my Christmas wishes, I’d love to have a professional KitchenAid mixer, or a Bosch one. And a pizza stone & peel.

  6. Boy could I use some decent knifes! I have been married for 23 years and I am still using a set I recieved for my wedding:) Thank You!

  7. Can’t wish for much as I’ve run out of room, but a set of these beautiful knives would surely look better on my counter that the old ones I have now. Maybe an attachment for the Bosch mixer. Thanks so much for the wonderful reviews you do.

  8. After seeing these amazing knives I would love to add them to my wishlist! Unfortunately my wish list will continue to grow…at least until med school for the husband is complete. One of the huge things I would love in my dream kitchen is a pellet ice machine!!

  9. It is really simple, but I am in dying need of a lemon juicer! Just one of those hand held small gadgets that are perfect for lemons or limes. It is something small and I always forget about it till I am at home, squeezing every last ounce of juice out with my teeth. It’s a little absurd.

  10. A Le Creuset round 5-1/2 quart dutch oven is on my Christmas list. The handles on those knives are beautiful–I haven’t seen anything like them in my local stores.

  11. These are the most beautiful knives I have ever seen! Considering the beauty along with the reputation of the blade sharpening company, let’s just say I would love to own a complete set, including the knife block.

  12. those knives are gorgeous!!! I’m w/#44 a Le Creuset Dutch Oven would be very nice, an immersion blender would come in handy too, or better yet a decent food processor, unfortunately my wish list is never ending. 🙂

  13. I could REALLY use a set of knives such as this. I have terrible arthritis and neuro problems with my neck, arms, and hands and struggle mightily. These look gorgeous and probably work well, too.

  14. I’d LOVE a new immersion blender to replace my 30 year old one, a set of Good Grips OXO kitchen tools, a set of metal measuring cups including the 1/3 and 2/3 cups (very hard to find), (powder blue) Kitchen Aid mixer, new food processor, lovely blender, ahhh, there are lots of items. Thanks for listening. Personally I’d be happy with one decent knife 🙂

  15. Holy Cow!!! I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to win one of these knives. I have a large spoon with the wood make the same way. I love a good quality knife but only have 1 good one in my arsenal. Fingers crossed!!

  16. Well now I want new knives! I’ve been thinking about getting a larger, fancier crock pot and some of your garlic olive oil. Oh, and the new Taylor Swift cd per your recommendation- music to cook and dance to!

  17. Love the knives!! Wish I could afford even one! Those knives are now on my list but I would love a food scale for Christmas.

  18. Oh my goodness, those are gorgeous. I’ve never seen anything like them until today.
    I’ve asked for a Ninja slowcooker for Christmas this year. 🙂

  19. Okay these are just gorgeous! I am hoping for a new blender this year, but I might change my mind and ask for these instead:)

  20. I own three Newwest Knives and I love them. Whenever we have people over for dinner, they always want to try them out. Less chopping for me.

  21. Dear Santa, please bring me new pots and pans, a BlendTec, or these beautiful knives Kate and Sarah have shown us. I’ve been a very good girl this year. 🙂

  22. Those knives are beautiful! Would love to have some! Also, we have worn out our ice cream maker and could use a new one.

  23. Boy do I need some knives. I have been married for 23 years and am still using the ones we recieved for our wedding:) Thank you!

  24. Beautiful knifes. I would love to have a mini loaf pan (the bigger mini size — approx. 3 x 6), lemon squeezer, strawberry slicer, snow cone machine (by Nostalgia Electrics), toaster, and a Trader Joe’s shopping spree. 🙂

  25. I love the colors and what they will accomplish in my kitchen!!!!! I would love to win them and happy holidays, the days seem to zoom right along and poor thanksgiving a day no one seems to take seriously anymore, so sad, we are going to the beach and feast on the fruits of the sea with friends I have known since childhood, wow whee, sincerely from mary at

  26. a kitchen scale. a cookie scoop. a cast iron pan. a fabulous blender. so many things. These knives look pretty spectacular too.

  27. Simply needed to say that I truly like this aide.I would like to congratulate you for this valuable tips. Thank you! I would love to see something like this included in the video.
