Cheese Cutting Conundrum



Which cheese knife to choose is dependent on the firmness of the cheese.

Soft cheeses require sharp knives that can cope with stickiness. The best blades for these are made from stainless steel and often have holes. Knives with forked ends are also for soft cheeses, making serving easier. Cheese cutters are other alternatives to knives when dealing with soft cheeses.

Hard cheeses call for hard blades and often look short and stubby. Cheese slicers can also come in handy with hard cheeses. The beauty of the cheese slicers is the consistent and often thin slices it produces.

Cut Chilled Cheese

While it’s optimal to take cheese out of the refrigerator about an hour prior to serving, should you plan to have pre-sliced cheese as part of your presentation, remember to cut while cold (the knife slides more smoothly that way).
