1. CHEESE KNIVES FOR SOFT CHEESE

Soft cheeses like brie or Double Crème have a soft interior and could easily stick to the knife. To make a cleaner cut and keep the shape of the delicate interior you can use a knife with a very thin straight blade or a cheese knife with holes. If you dont have a cheese knife, a sharp cooks knife dipped in hot water and wiped off will also do the job.

2. CHEESE KNIVES FOR SLICING

The cheese planes or slicers are used for shaving even slices of semi-hard or hard cheeses.

4. CHEESE FORKS

The cheese fork can be used to hold a block of cheese in place while cutting its also ideal for crumbling hard or aged cheeses into smaller pieces.

 

SERVING CHEESE

When you serve cheese remember to provide a separate cheese knife for each cheese, and encourage guests not to mix the knives to avoid mixing the flavors of the cheese.
