For Months I have been seeing an ad on Facebook Market Place for an old hard cheese cutter. I’ve only seen theses in pictures of old cheese shops or in some high-end cheese shops, rarely used and only for display. The price was not high, my budget was tight, so with some penny pinching here and there I was able to buy it.
From the pictures in the ad, I knew that it would need some work to make it look good, let alone useable. The cutting board is sanded plywood, the blade is stainless steel, but pitted. The good thing is the rust only looks to be surface rust.
The real surprise came when I lifted the “cutting board” off. I had no idea that there was a turning mechanism below. There is a piece that is supposed to help you set the angle at which the cheese will be cut/rotate the board, it was broken off. I know a few welders so I might be able to get a replacement part.
I hope to start working on this project over the Christmas break. If anyone has any suggestions or knows more about this type of cutter let me know in the comments or drop me a line through the contact me section.
