David Stepan: Hammered Copper Cheese Knife


Artist: David Stepan
Location: Queens, Nova Scotia

A unique hand hammered copper soft cheese knife. Measuring about 5" to 6". It is designed to spread a softer cheese, but it can also cut cheese. As well as spreading a goat cheese, these knives are used to cut cheddar, and similarly dense cheeses.

Wrought from solid copper bar, it is hammered out, annealed, hammered, annealed, and hammered, creating a one of a kind instrument. Through hammering the copper becomes work hardened, allowing it to take an edge. Unlike most commercially available cheese tool sets in which the knives are extremely dull, this knife has been sharpened, improving its functionality.This piece is individually packed in its own flocked vinyl case.

Size: 5" - 6"
