ABOUT Cheese Knives
With the ever-growing popularity of cheese and charcuterie boards and grazing boards taking center stage when entertaining at home, having an assortment of cheese knives and accessories is a must.
Whether you consider yourself a cheese connoisseur or enjoy a mix of charcuterie, cheese, and pickles when serving family and friends, our selection of handcrafted cheese knives and cheese accessories includes all the tools you need for an elegant evening.
Handcrafted Cheese Knives
Our cheese knives come in sets of three and four. Each set comes with various tools, including a spreader, a fork-tipped spear, a cheese shaver, a cleaver, a fork, or a Stilton spoon.
A fork-tipped spear or pronged cheese knife is a multi-purpose tool. It has a narrow curved knife blade so soft cheeses are less likely to stick to the surface and the prong or fork on the end lets you serve or plate your cheese after its cut. Because it is so versatile and useful, we include this cheese knife in every set ofhandcrafted cheese knives.
The cheese spreader or spatula knife is perfect for spreading cream cheeses, dips, and spreads on crackers and crusty bread. Not designed to cut through cheeses, the blade is dull, with a wide rounded surface for spreading.
For slicing off pieces of aged cheeses, the flat or chisel knife is another great tool to have in your cheese cutting collection. This knife has a wide, flat blade with a sharp bottom edge. To use it, you hold the blade vertically over the cheese and push downward.
Another popular knife is the cheese shaver. Also called a cheese plane, it is ideal for cutting thin slices of cheese. It has a spatula-like shape with a sharp-edge slit that you run over the top or side of a piece of cheese. The slice will settle on the top of the shaver so you can easily drop it onto your plate.
Every cheese board will do well to have a cheese fork for serving/plating pieces of cheese. With two solid pointed prongs, it works wonders at piercing through pieces as well as breaking up blocks of aged cheese.
While cheese knives are a must on your cheese board, our selection of cheese accessories includes other specialty pieces for the cheese connoisseur. One of these accessories is the Stilton spoon.
Stilton cheese has a cylinder shape. Use the spoon or scoop to dip deeply into the center of the cylinder and place the scooped-up crumbly cheese onto your plate.
The Stilton spoon isn’t just for enjoying Stilton cheese. There are many kinds of gourmet blue cheeses to dig into, including Stichelton, Per Las, and Gorgonzola Dolce, to name a few.
For those who love blue cheeses, our Stilton Scoop 4 Pc. Sets are the ultimate gift.
Charcuterie Serving Utensils
Olives and charcuterie boards go together like chips and dip. For impactful flavor serve them in bowls with the brine and set an olive spoon in or near each bowl so guests can help themselves.
Not just for scooping up olives, the perforated spoons are useful for scooping up capers, pickled onions, marinated mozzarella balls, and more.
