The Alessi Antechinus Cheese Knife's lines recall both the stylized forms of a slice of cheese and those of a little mouse intent on enjoying his favorite food.
The curve creates a sensuous grip, giving the knife a balanced and aesthetically pleasing aspect. Antechinus can stand on its blade and doesn't need any support.
The fact that both sides of the blade are sharpened also make it suitable for use as a cheese cutter for mature cheeses.
Its namesake, "Antechinus," is based upon a little mouse of the same name native to Australia.
Alessi has been manufacturing beautiful, Italian-made household products since 1921. These stylish, contemporary creations are the result of strong partnerships with some of the world's best designers of unique, modern home decor and accessories.
