This project came about from a previous project. I was wondering what I could make to further my product line and decided to incorporate the knife block I made for a custom order. I made a small scale of the knife block along with 3 walnut cheese knives. I liked how the knives came out I think they will go great as a new product. The knife block pulls it all together though, this block and knives on a fine end grain cutting board will go nice as a presentation piece. I made the block out of cherry and the knives out of walnut, I used an orbital table saw and dremel . Not complicated on the woodworking end but was still a fun piece to create. Let me know what you think and if you have any advice on improvements.

I find the knives interesting, how well do they work with cheese and how long do they last? Other than that it’s a good looking set.

Thanks for posting,

Nice work. I do something similar but make my knives out of cherry. After a couple of years of cutting cheese they are doing just fine.

Those are very nice knives. The block you designed is a great idea and also very unique. A super job all the way around.
