Highly skilled hands and modern precision tools work in concert to create a new standard in quality and workmanship. The finest materials are sculpted, assembled and hand-finished to ensure every piece is a perfect work of art. For over 15 years, New West KnifeWorks and Corey Milligan made these knives and won awards at the nation's top juried fine art shows. The knives have been featured in many of the nation's top culinary and design magazines. The Fusionwood 2.0 line represents 15 years of refinement of an idea to create the finest knives in the world in both form and function. The Fusionwood 2.0 made with powder metal super steel CPM S35VN combined with the revolutionary plunge ground, tapered tang blade grinding method put these knives at the leading edge in the world in terms of performance, functionality and design. The New West KnifeWorks signature Fusionwood handle remains an incredibly durable and beautiful material that is hand sculpted to create a seamless interface with the hand that is also a thing of beauty.
