Parmesan Wheel Cracking Knife
Let's get cracking.
Cracking a wheel of hard cheese can be considered an art form all on its own—and this cracking knife? It’s the chisel we reach for again and again. (Tip: We love pairing it with this scorer.) It has a stainless-steel blade that makes piercing and splitting Parmesan, Asiago, and Gorgonzola a breeze. And with that sturdy handle, you can keep a firm grip as you sculpt away. This one’s made in Italy and designed by a company that’s been making cheesewares for over 120 years, so it’s safe to say it’ll be helping us carve our fromage for a while.
