JACKSON, Wyo. — Jackson’s local knife maker is in the national spotlight once again. Bon Appetit, the world’s leading food magazine, reaches 6.5 million readers in print. The November issue features a four-page article about chef knives with New West KnifeWorks prominently highlighted among the world’s top cutlery manufacturers.
The brilliant handle colors and an etching of the Tetons definitely stand out among the more traditional blades. The editors give a special shout out to New West:
“It’s the champion of the all-around: agile enough to make delicate work of veggies and sturdy enough to bone a chicken. It strikes the perfect balance between power and grace. Corey Milligan of New West KnifeWorks says he gives their Petty knife to people he doesn’t know that well, since they’re guaranteed to find use for it, no matter how they cook. And with the groovy colored handles and sleek Japanese blade, they’re able to spot it from a mile (or a few feet) away.”
With national exposure, Milligan recommends buying early this year since they might sell everything out online.
To help with the shopping, New West has put together a series of gift guides to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list, naughty or nice.
Take a break from the holiday hustle and step around the corner from the knife shop to New West’s contemplative space, the New West Fine Art gallery, representing the cutting edge of Western Contemporary Art. Local artist and rising star Connor Liljestrom has been featured in Colorado Homes, Range, Homestead, and has been heralded by Oona Doherty of the Jackson Hole Center for the Arts as “bold, contemporary and original.”
For an experience in downtown Jackson that the whole family can enjoy, 98 Center Street is unmatched. Take the tour through the three chambers of the shop linking the “functional art” of locally made culinary knives and high performance outdoor gear with captivating, large-scale Western Contemporary fine art.
