How to Choose the Best Cheese Knives for a Perfect Slice – Ultimate Buyers’ Guide
Now that you know which are the best cheese knife sets are, it is time to choose. Which one is perfect for you? What are the things to look out for when getting your own cheese knife set? We cover all that in our handy buyers’ guide.
Four, Six, Eight?
The first thing you need to decide is how many knives you genuinely need. If you’re a newbie to the realm of cheese, you might want to start with a basic set of four. They have the essentials and keep it plain and simple. However, if you want something a little bit more advanced for a wider variety of dairy, the six-piece might be the one for you. It offers more variety than the four-piece, but not so much that you get overwhelmed.
However, if you are a true master in cheese knives and cheese itself, an eight-piece set is the one for you. It offers a wide variety and doesn’t limit itself to just the basics and often has some special knives for rare cheese too. However, if you’re giving someone a gift, a four or six-piece set will more than suffice.
The grip is the most important thing for any knife, be it a fillet knife, meat knife, or cheese knife. It is imperative that you get a grip that works for you. Wooden handles are generally more comfortable to work with since they are softer, firmer, and lighter than metal.
However, the steadiness and substantial weight provided by metal grips are unmatched. At the end of the day, this comes down to personal preference. For those people who simply can not choose, a rounded metal grip is also a good idea since it gives you the best of both worlds. However, such grips might be more slippery and harder to handle.
Is this set for your own self, or for someone else? If your answer is the latter, then you need proper, fancy packaging, which is usually in the shape of a gift box. While most cheese sets do come with elegant packaging, it is not always the case, so keep your eye out for the nicer ones.
On the other hand, even if it isn’t a gift, you still need proper packaging to make sure it stays in one place. Unless you purchase a cheese set box elsewhere, it is essential for your set to have a beautiful box it can call home.
While you won’t really get a choice for this one, it is still essential to make sure you get something you’ll use at least halfway. A lot of the time, the set you get isn’t really suited to the type of cheese you’ll be using it on. It is vital to make your choice in accordance with the purpose they’ll be serving.
Make sure that if you’re mainly cutting harder and tougher cheese, the blades can slice and handle those properly. On the other hand, if you have softer cheese and the blades are designed for tougher cheese, your cheese will fall apart, and there will be nothing left other than sadness, regret, and wasted money. This is why you need to be careful when choosing a knife set and should only choose one that is suited to what it’ll be used for.
The ideal set is one that has knives for every occasion, tough and hard cheese, sot and crumbly cheese, and stringy cheese. Variety never hurts anyone.
And with that, we conclude our epic adventure through the cheese and what cuts it.
