Fussing over a Burgundy glass versus a Bordeaux glass may sound silly to the uninitiated, but wine lovers know that proper glassware elevates their wine-drinking experience even beyond the show-off-able skill of matching a wine to its rightful glass. The glass that was designed for that type of wine takes into account its unique texture, aromas, and flavors and enhances each.
Same goes for cheese knives. A cheese lover knows that a Camembert does not behave the same way in snacking and cooking as Cheddar—why should they be portioned with the same knife? Not only does using different knives keep crumbles of blue from migrating over to the Brie, but it also allows for a more seamless portioning (and eating!) experience.
Gold Plated Cheese Knife Set
With the Gold Plated Cheese Knife set, you have a knife for every category—hard cheeses are effortlessly cut with the cleaver, soft cheese is cleanly portioned with a perforated blade, and crumbly cheeses are broken apart with a fork-tipped spear knife.
Laguiole Cheese Knife Set
Laguiole is world-famous for their finely crafted cheese knives. If you’re locally famous for your love of cheese, you must have the Laguiole Cheese Knife 3-Piece Set. Handmade in France, the beautiful wooden box holds sleek stainless steel blades set off against black acrylic. The iconic bee insignia on your three new cheese knives—one for each style of cheese, of course—will broadcast to other lovers of the finer things that your taste in cheese and cheese accessories is nothing less than impeccable.
Hard Cheese Knife
Just looking for a solo knife today? The classically styled Hard Cheese Knife is crafted from stainless steel and acacia wood. The pronged spear will break apart crumbly cheeses while the blade slices through favorites like Comté and Manchego with the greatest of ease.
Soft Cheese Knife
Without a knife specifically for soft cheese, those perfectly ripe Bries, Camemberts, and Epoisses are likely to smear all over your board and knife. Enter the Soft Cheese Knife. The stainless steel blade has little holes throughout (much like a wedge of Swiss Emmentaler), to keep even the most decadent triple-creams from sticking. Less cheese stuck on the knife means more cheese for you!
