Good cheese is loved by almost everyone.
Cutting cheese with the cheese slicer knife is not just a matter of style. But, using the right knife maintains the shape of the cheese and granular consistency, and lets you enjoy the full flavour and great taste.
You can slice different cheeses with a set of three knives –a knife for semi-hard cheeses, a knife for compact or hard cheeses, and a knife for soft cheeses. All the other knives are a great addition to your amazing cheese knife set.
Different Types of Cheese Knives
Let’s go through different types of cheese knives and understand how they are different from each other:
Soft Cheese Knife
Handcrafted to deal with the natural stickiness of soft å, this type of knife has a very thin, sharp, and narrow blade to put less pressure on the cheese and cut cheese slices smoothly. Ideal for Gorgonzola, Mozzarella, Camembert, Brie and any soft cheese, this knife also works wonderfully on semi-hard and hard cheeses.
Pronged Cheese Knife
The pronged cheese knife is also known as a forked-tipped spear. This multipurpose tool enables you to cut a cheese slice and hold it with the help of prongs for plating or serving. These are best for cutting soft to semi-hard cheeses such as Brie and Parmesan.
A cheese spreader, also known as a spatula knife, is absolutely a must-have to spread cheeses onto loaves of bread. It has a rounded, thin and flexible blade. It is ideal for Crea, Cheese, Stracchino, and Robiola.
A parmesan cheese knife appears to be a triangular stubby blade with a sharp-pointed tip to cut off chunks of dry and hard cheeses. These are ideal for cutting hard cheeses like Grana Padano, parmesan, and Castelmagno.
Cheddar Cheese Knife
It is also known as mini cleaver cheddar cleaver, or semi-hard cheese knife that is designed to cut semi-hard and hard cheeses such as Colby, Cheddar, Gruyere, and Fontina.
Flat Cheese Knife
Also known as trapezium knife or chisel knife, it is widely used for cutting perfect slices or fine cubes from hard, semi-hard and crumbly cheeses that are thick and large. This is perfect for Provolone, Swiss, Gruyere, and so on.
Cheese forks are amazing tools to serve cheese, both hard and soft such as Cheddar, Provolone, Feta, Parmesan, and Gouda.
By using an ideal cheese knife set, you can improve your speed of cutting a perfect slice of cheese and serve it gracefully before the guests. Inox Artisans has the collection of handcrafted copper antique and full-polished cheese accessories helpful in cutting the cheese in perfect cubes.
