Cheese knife

A cheese knife set

At the International Milan Furniture Fair 2018, and more precisely in the Swiss design district, an object could be discovered at A Perfect Swiss Cheese Knife exhibition, that satisfies all wishes: a cheese knife set. Within the framework of a course led by the Geneva designer Claudio Colucci, 14 students in Product Design from HEAD-Genève (Geneva School of Art and Design) had to create a knife for Gruyère® AOP with an accompanying cheese board. The ergonomic set by Thomas Manil convinced as well the jury as us. His steel knife has a rustic form of a cheese wheel of a 13 cm-diameter, a height of 2 cm with a round beech wood sheath. The whole is sufficiently compact to be taken in a handbag or a backpack for a picnic. A thousand pieces of this beautiful mixture between contemporary creation and local tradition are now in production at Swiza, a Swiss knife manufacturer, and will soon be on sale!
