New West KnifeWorks makes knives using the same approach they use to cooking: they use the best ingredients and prepare them with the patient hands of an artist.
Their goal is to make everyday work more enjoyable by making tools that are as beautiful as they are useful.
Founder Corey Milligan moved to Jackson Hole to have a good life. In order to earn a living while enjoying nature, he worked as a line chef in local restaurants.
His initial interest in cutlery arose from a desire to make a knife that would better express his love of cooking.
New West KnifeWorks was born out of that passion, a passion that drives the company to this day.
New West celebrates the dignity of work and believes that the tools we use are an expression of who we are.
New West Knives are made in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and have a storefront on Park City’s Main Street.
Corey came with us in our kitchen to show us a few techniques with different knives to make you feel more confident in the kitchen.
He also made one of his favorite recipes for hearty fruity salads made with fresh fruits and vegetables from Utah’s famous “Fruit Way” on Old Highway 89.
