Our Cheese Slicer Boards are face grain cut with our unique reverse glue joint, creating 5 times the gluing surface. This joint is our distinctive signature decorative joint ©, which stands for durability. Our Cheese Slicer Boards are made with hand chosen cherry, maple and walnut wood and have 100% food safe rubber bumper feet. The Cheese Slicer mechanism is a black aluminum dowel with a black plastic handle with stainless steel wire slicer. Our Cheese Slicer Boards make an attractive and practical gift and are beneficial for arthritic hands, as the wire slides easily thru hard or soft cheese.
