The La Via Lattea Set of Hard Cheese Knives ($400) is not for the amateur cheesemonger, but it is impressive as hell! Did you know that cheese changes in taste and smell as you move from the center towards the rind? We'll pretend you did. In order to take in all the cheese has to offer, it needs to be cut into portions that capture all these subtle nuances. The right blade makes that happens, and this set includes a hard cheese knife, semi-firm cheese knife. serving fork, a guide to cutting and tasting cheeses, and a double-strength heavy cotton wallet. If you're willing to spend $400 on knifes, we can't wait to taste the cheese that'll go with it!
