Award-winning Dutch company Boska has been making professional-grade cheese tools with superb designs for more than a century. Different cheeses have different cutting needs, and this beautiful leather-bound set covers the full spectrum. The Soft Cheese Knife
has a long, ultrathin blade to cut narrow wedges from wheels of brie or Camembert, with a fine edge and minimal surface area so the creamy cheese doesn't lose its shape under the pressure of the knife. The Cheesy Cheese Knife
, which has holes reminiscent of Swiss cheese, is a middle-of-the-line knife that can slice anything from soft to semihard cheeses. And the holes aren't just decorative—they maintain airflow between the cheese and knife for a smoother cutting motion. For hard cheeses like Parmesan—which should be cracked, not cut—the Hard Cheese Knife
in Boska's set has a subtly wedged blade that tapers from a thick spine to a fine cutting edge. This shape is ideal for piercing hard rinds and breaking off chunks of cheese, while the long weighted handle ensures a firm grip as you use the knife.
All of the Monaco+ knives are made of a durable matte-finished stainless steel and feature a patented quilted texture that allows airflow and prevents cheese from sticking as you cut. This nonstick property makes all the difference for getting a clean slice every time. And unlike cheese slicers that have flimsy wooden handles, these knives are sturdier and more comfortable in the hand as well as dishwasher-safe.
