The original Cheese Knife was a great surprise for us … a very Cool Tool: beautiful mid-20th Century American industrial design, with a clean functional purpose, that performs its tasks really well.
The original Cheese Knife was developed in the early 1940s to cut Velveeta - the designer/inventor’s favorite cheese product of that era - but it clearly belongs on any cheese plate. We use it a lot: to prepare a small dice (1/4”) or even a brunoise (1/8”) of mozzarella to sprinkle over fresh tomatoes or on top of pasta. It slices burrata into beautiful small creamy bites and it works really nicely for thin slices of Brie and other triple creme cheeses. But the original wasn’t quite large enough to make it through a good-sized block of cheese.
And now there are more uses and more choices, with the same basic design: a red-handled Small Cheese Knife - for pairing with your red-rinded cheese or pepper-infused cheeses - and this Large Cheese Knife, in Velveeta Yellow or Basic Black - for easily slicing those larger cheese blocks. Imagine the nice thick slices of cheddar or jack for your next Grilled Cheese Sandwich!
All of these are still Made in the USA. And the prices are right. So it won’t take long for all the versions of The Cheese Knife to earn a place in your knife drawer, alongside their steely cousins. Enjoy!
