Cheese knives are specialized knives designed for cutting and serving cheese. They come in various shapes and sizes, each serving a specific purpose for different types of cheese. Here are some common types of cheese knives:


1. Cheese Plane/Slicer: This knife has a flat, wide blade with a sharp edge. It is used for slicing thin, even slices of hard and semi-hard cheeses like Cheddar, Gouda, and Swiss.


2. Cheese Cleaver: This knife has a broad, rectangular blade with a sharp edge. It is primarily used for cutting hard cheeses, such as Parmesan or aged Gouda. The weight and strength of the cleaver make it easier to break apart dense and crumbly cheeses.


3. Cheese Fork: This knife features two prongs at the tip and a curved blade. It is ideal for cutting and serving soft and crumbly cheeses like feta or blue cheese. The prongs allow for easy picking and serving of the cheese.


4. Cheese Spreader: This knife has a short, wide, and flat blade. It is designed for spreading soft and creamy cheeses, such as Brie or Camembert, onto crackers or bread.


5. Cheese Knife with Holes: This knife has a perforated or hole-riddled blade. The holes prevent soft and sticky cheeses, like fresh mozzarella or goat cheese, from sticking to the blade.


6. Cheese Wire: A cheese wire consists of a thin, taut wire stretched between two handles. It is commonly used for slicing soft, delicate cheeses like cheesecake or goat cheese logs. The wire creates clean cuts without crushing the cheese.


Remember that while these knives are designed for specific types of cheese, you can still use a regular knife for general cheese cutting if you don't have specialized cheese knives available.
