Swissmar's Acacia Board and Cheese Knife set includes a stainless steel knife for semi-soft cheeses and a 15 by 10 inch Acacia cutting and serving board. The stainless steel knife's sharp pointed tip cuts through cheeses with rinds, and holes in the blade prevent softer cheeses from sticking. The board is made from beautiful Acacia wood with a birch accent strip. Acacia is an environmentally friendly hardwood that is known for its water resistance, extraordinary strength and beautiful wood grain patterns. Pad on bottom of the board ensures an easy grip. To clean, hand wash Acacia board in warm soapy water (do not soak) and thoroughly rinse. Air dry and periodically rub with mineral oil or butcher block oil to prevent cracking and to preserve the wood's rich natural colors.
