10E2067: Giveaway - New West Knifeworks

For over 10 years, New West KnifeWorks and owner Corey Milligan have created these distinctive knives. I have to be honest I have seen them in magazines previously but just sort of whipped by them... need to get out more maybe. My loss. Need to get some color in my life. These Fusionwood handles are created from hardwood logged in Vermont.

The blades are made of US Steel and cut ground and finished by the Lamson and Goodnow Company, America's oldest cutlery manufacturer, in nearby Shelburne Falls, MA. That 1800s  factory is now run completely on hydro power generated on site,  making this a very "green" knife.

The example above is a Mini Chopper; 3.4" blade with an 8" overall length, aka the cheese cleaver. New West KnifeWorks is giving one of these away to a 10e reader [update - or a pairing knife if you prefer -J]  simply visit their site then leave a first impression comment here on 10e or via twitter. Winner pulled at 5pm EST. UPDATE KC - you won. Email me your mailing address. Congrats.

They are also running a competition via facebook to win a 4 piece knife set - link. Not bad. Thanks guys.
