Most of our customers know and love The Cheese Knife. And most of them come back for more, to have an extra in the drawer when one is dirty, and also for stocking stuffers at Christmastime. For soft cheese, deviled eggs, butter, homemade caramels, and any soft food that is difficult to cut without it sticking to the knife.
Best of all, this knife will not cut you! Sometimes a child will reach for the demo knife on our counter, and the parent will grab their arm and tell them not to touch it, thinking it's one of those razor-sharp ceramic knives. Not to worry, this is a specially designed hard plastic that lasts a long time, but is not sharp. The reason for it's cutting super powers lies in it's the shape of its surface, allowing it cleave through foods with less surface area.
Invented in the 1940s by Joseph Henry Fairchild, an engineer looking for a solution to cut Velveeta, The Cheese Knife finally found its stride in recent years when his daughter Myra introduced it to the rest of the world.
This is one of our favorites, and we know it will be one of yours too. They make great gifts, and you'll probably want an extra, maybe one for the car for an impromptu picnic!
Two bits of advice: Place the knife in the dishwasher utensil basket point up, and don't use it with hard cheeses. The Cheese Knife doesn't last forever, but will last much longer if you follow those two rules.
