The La Via Lattea Cheese Knives provide a sophisticated way to cut the cheese. Each knife is specialized--there are knives for hard cheese, soft cheese, goat cheeses...and other kinds of cheese. Five knives is a lot just for cheese, but Alessi must have a clue as to why there would need to be five.
La Via Lattea Cheese Knives are pretty and functional. What they're not is cheap, so save your pennies if you're looking to cut the cheese in the near future.
