You don't seriously look at Japanese knives when looking for something that cuts cheese, do you?

This is what we use in Holland: Image .

Well, it is what my cheesemaking farmer uses.

For HerbGardenMarkers

Sorry I guess they don't have that knife anymore. I guess I should have said I saw these in The Swiss Alps and Bernese Oberland. I can't seem to find where to buy one and could barely find any images. Mine is very rustic with no markings or name. Likely just locally made in the village I was in. Here are some more images one of which is traditional and the others more modern.

Maybe someone out there knows more about these.

I worked for Marathon Cheese in WI for a bit. It's the worlds largest cheese processing facility and we would use wire. Cheese typically came in 540# blocks and wire with a dowel on each end worked best. This same method of cutting works well on wheels and small blocks.

Thanks for the pics. That is sure a specialty knife, if you can call it a knife. Looks like it would do the job.
