Why a cheese knife at all?
Can’t cheese simply be cut with a normal kitchen knife? No, because the consistency of this food makes particular demands on a cutting tool. Cheese has a more or less smooth consistency. This means that when cut with a commercially available knife, the cheese easily sticks to the blade. A cheese knife therefore has different sized notches, to prevent the cheese from sticking. This also ensures a straight and even cut.
The cheese knives and cheese slicers in our shop.
As there are numerous varieties of cheese on the market, different knives are needed for cutting them. We have briefly summarized here what distinguished cheese knives from one another.
Cheese knives for hard cheese
Hard cheese includes popular varieties such as parmesan, cheddar or Emmental. To cut these you have to use a lot of strength and should use a specialist cheese knife. Hard cheese knives have a correspondingly wide blade and an ergonomic handle that optimizes strength transmission when cutting.
Cheese knives for soft cheese
Soft cheese varieties are, for example, gorgonzola, cream cheese, cottage cheese, camembert and mozzarella. When you cut this cheese with a simple utility knife or chef’s knife, then the cheese can easily get out of shape and can hardly be served. Special cheese knives for creamy cheeses have special, very thin blades with the corresponding notches. With these tines and low material thickness, you can achieve a straight cut and visually appealing display with these knives.
Tip for the proper care of cheese knives
A cheese knife, e.g. made from stainless steel, is best cleaned with a brush and water after use. This ensures you thoroughly remove any food remains from the gaps. It also stays sharp for longer when contact with salts and detergents is reduced.
