It is best used for soft to semi soft cheeses such as Brie.

With its pointed tip and razor sharp blade, you can the hard cheeses into any size you want.
The hard cheese knife that comes with a quilted pattern, non-stick coating and a narrow blade helps in preventing cheese from sticking to its blade.
Some hard cheese knives such as the Swissmar hard cheese knife features a sharp point for piercing or scoring rinds on cheeses such as romano, parmesan, brie.

The 2 prongs at the tip is handy for picking up pieces of cheese when serving your guests.
The holes in the blade minimizes cheese sticking to it.

You can use it for spreading jam or butter too.
Cheddar Cheese Cleaver
Specially designed for cheddar, use the cheese cleaver for cubing hard cheese such as the Havarti, Colby, Swiss and of course your Cheddar cheese.
The cleaver shape and wide blade allows for force to be used when cutting the harder cheeses.

Dutch Cheese Knife
The traditional Dutch cheese knife is good for slicing semi-hard to hard cheeses.
It is also ideal for cutting old and young cheeses with a tough or hard rind.
