And is there a better tool to have at your disposal on Thanksgiving than a good knife? Simple answer. No.

The kind people at New West KnifeWorks sent me a shiny new Petty Utility Knife Fusionwood 2.0 to test out in my own kitchen. I have only had it a few days, but darned if it isn’t currently the sharpest blade in my kitchen. Trust me, I was almost dumb enough to go all Sleeping Beauty on it. This little knife chops through tomatoes and apples so smoothly (tomato skins annoy the heck out of me!) and makes quick work out of carrots and celery. The rainbow colors make it stand out against my other knives and is beautiful as a display pieces for cheeseboards (make your guests sign a disclaimer before letting them use it. No lawsuits here). On top of beautiful design, New West knives are all 100% made in America, in Wyoming, out of fushionwood and CPM S35VN Steel. Not to mention these super sharp bad boys come with an adorable leather cover and a lifetime warranty.

    i love every beautiful new west knife, but if i could have any, i would LOVE to have their hunter’s knife–fusionwood-20-line/jh-hunter/4331

    i spend a lot of time outside and will be learning to hunt this summer. it is hunting season this weekend where i live in the ozarks.

    if i had a multipurpose knife like this, i would use it for preparing meat in my own kitchen, and then bring it up to my friend’s house in the woods in north-central michigan so i can learn to prepare a deer with the proper tools.

    i would use this knife constantly. i have only one decent-quality knife – a tiny little fixed-blade 3in benchmade – and i use it CONSTANTLY. i harvest edible and medicinal plants from the woods, cut woody stems on delicious hen-of-the-woods and chicken-of-the-woods mushrooms, and honestly (being a 120lb female) find i just feel safer and better equipped to deal with life with it in my pocket.

    i’d love to have a slightly larger multipurpose knife to use in my kitchen, out and about in the woods, or for whatever comes up!

    these new west knives are gorgeous and look so well-crafted! <3

    You know, I just finalized my Thanksgiving menu but I’m totally saving this post for next year’s Thanksgiving! Thanks for the awesome giveaway – I just became a fan of their FB page. I could definitely use a new knife!
