Styling the New West

Style WYO Journal

If you want to be a real mountain man you need some toys from the Mountain Man Toy Shop.....

Jackson Hole has attracted "Mountain Men" to this wild and rugged land since the early 19th century.  Legends like Jim Bridger, John Colter, and Davey Jackson left their names on the land through their early exploits.  The New West Knifeworks, aka NWKW, was founded by Corey Milligan built on the needs and wants of outdoorsmen, cowboys, ranchers, climbers, fisherman, skiers, hunters, river runners and kitchen gurus for both men and women alike.  The toy shop, Mountain Man Toy Shop, lives inside of the NWKW store offering treasures abound.  These quality knives and tomahawks are real beauties and one of kind pieces that are also functional, durable and truly pieces of art all fully made in the USA.  They have two stores one in Jackson Hole and the other in Napa Valley, St. Helena, CA.

Mountain Toys and Gifts 

It is worth the time to get onto mtnmengifts.com to peruse through all the goodies these guys offer.  From custom knives, axes, give'r 4 season gloves, handforged throwing tomahawks, knife rolls, knife sharpeners, knifeblocks, hats and belts.  It is just fun to scroll through and great take-a-away's from our beautiful Jackson Hole speaking the true outdoors.  You'll even find how to practice safe ax skills and how to throw and handle these rough and tumble tomahawks.....

Also noteworthy, these guys have been featured in many national magazines such as Forbes, Saveur, Food and Wine, New York Magazine, Wine Spectator and Fine Cooking.  They are no longer our valley's best kept secret......

New West Styling Tips

Because these pieces are beautiful and also useful in the kitchen and on the table, they are easy to style with.  Here I have some of the spatula's from newwestknifeworks.com which is called a G-Fusion Turner Spatula ranging about $50.00.  The slotted one is called a G-Fusion Slotted Fish Spatula and runs about the same price. Hard to see but they are sitting on a 7 piece KIng Cocobolo Knifeblock which runs about $320.00.  Both would make very nice wedding gifts.........
