This is a Norwegian invention, the cheese slicer. You will find it in many different designs and materials, all depending on the price you pay for it. This is a cheap one, with a plastic handle. It still does it's job, though.
Read about the cheese slicer on Wikipedia or visit the first company in the world to produce cheese slicers: Bjørklund.
We have run this blog for quite a while, and feel like we need a break to do other things. We will still post photos, but not as often as before. Hopefully you will continue to visit us from time to time. :-)
