This adorable cheese knife looks like a miniature Chinese cleaver. Made of stainless steel with a solid riveted handle, it works quite well for firm cheeses. At about six inches in length, it isn't large enough to get the leverage required to cut some of the really hard cheeses, although you can shave off thin slices from a small piece. Its distinctive appearance makes it very nice for serving cheeses such as Gruyere de Comté or Cheddar. Safe for machine washing.
