We like this style of cheese knife for its clean cutting and versatility. Holes in its blade reduce friction when slicing, so softer cheeses don't stick to it. Its sturdy rounded blade wields firmer cheeses well, and its forked tip is of course for pricking then lifting the cheese slice to the plate. Stainless steel and kitchenproof, but nice enough to go on a plateau de fromage. If you had tight drawer space and could only have one cheese knife, this would be the kind to have.
