A cheese “bow” is made specifically for cutting messy, softer-textured cheeses, such as Roquefort.
The curved blade and double handles on this knife make it possible for a cheesemonger to cleave a large, hard-textured wheel of cheese using a slight rocking motion.
A heavy-duty knife like this is ideal for hard cheeses, as the two handles allow the cheesemonger to use extra leverage and balanced pressure.
In temperate climates, this attractive mesh-sided container is ideal for storing firm-textured cheeses at room temperature for a couple of days. The mesh keeps pesky critters away while allowing the cheese to breathe. Set the safe in a cool, dry place and your cheese will be ready to serve at a moment’s notice.
