The Cutest Cheese Knife I’ve Seen (and the First Post I’ve Written) in a Long Time!

I’m not even going to look at what the date of my last blog post was – I’m embarrassed to even admit it! SO, instead I’ll just write on and hope that I can continue to do so every day!

Recently, I was brought an apartment-warming gift from my friend Eleanor that delighted my cheesy self! It was a Topo Cheese Knife by Michael Aram from the “Dream: Flights of Fancy Collection.” When I’m out shopping – which is often – I always have my eyes out for new cheese accessories, but I had never come across any of Aram’s artful pieces. I’ve only tried the mouse knife on a buttery soft cheese thus far, and for a cheese of that density it works quite well. I have yet to try and use it to slice through a firmer piece of cheese. Intrigued by the whimsical mouse-shaped knife I did some research on its creator beyond what was provided on the helpful info card that was folded into the box.

Michael Aram is a designer who has lived and worked in India since the late 80’s. He is  trained in a diverse spectrum of artistic techniques, all of which are expressed in his huge variety of different designs! I checked out his website ( and immediately decided I want everything on it – especially his well-known skeleton chair, olive branch menorah, and his swiss cheese cutting board and knife!

I can’t wait to start decking out my pad in his designs – well… dreaming of decking out my pad.

Check out some of my favourites!
