American made kitchen knives from New West Knifeworks

New West Knifeworks


This is an 8-inch chef's knife designed for handling all your most frequent kitchen tasks: chopping, mincing, slicing, and dicing.

The Petty is the ultimate kitchen knife. In fact, I use it as my everyday knife!

It has been said that in order to survive in the kitchen you really only need two kitchen knives - a paring knife and a chef knife. The Petty utility knife challenges that notion. This classic Japanese blade shape works great as a peeling, paring, boning and carving knife for vegetables, fruits, herbs and other delicate work. However, it will also take on some of the slicing and dicing jobs of a large chef knife.

Both are made with a US High-carbon,stainless tool-steel blade, for sharpness and edge retention. If you're starting out with a knife like this, you can be sure that you'll keep a sharp edge without using a steel every time you pick it up. (We'll get to the steels later!)

The handle is just gorgeous, and ergonomically designed for balance and comfort

Always wash your knives by hand and dry immediately. Store them in a way that protects the blade.
