Laguiole en Aubrac Cheese Knife
+ $ shipping surcharge
Cut the cheese, please.
We’ve never seen a cheese knife quite like this one, and we’ll bet you haven’t, either. Made by Laguiole, one the most renowned knife-makers in France, this knife is handcrafted in the Aubrac region—an area known for its cows, fine quality milk, and the special cheeses produced there. This "Le Buron" cheese knife is named in reference to a traditional masonry style of building found in Aubrac, which were once used to keep cows and make cheese. It is specially designed to cut harder cheeses: the long, curved blade and wide handle allow for a unique range of motion, and the knife’s sharpness will ensure perfect slices, cubes, triangles, or whatever shape your cheese plate calls for. Each knife comes in a magnetic wood box for storage box.
