Details

Crickmore cheese knife Named after Jonny and Dulcie Crickmore from Fenn Farm Dairy in Suffolk. Fantastic traditional cheesemakers and supporters of British craft. Their Baron Bigod is the UK's only raw milk Brie. The steel in the blades is old Sheffield tool steel, not your typical modern steel alloy or stainless steel so most importantly if left in a wet environment it will pick up surface rust. Not unlike an old Sabatier or current artisan chefs knives. So please wipe it down with a hot cloth or if necessary wash in soapy water and dry immediately. Apply a little cooking oil if not in regular use. You can choose the wood for your handle here but as a natural product it will obviously vary from the one in the image. The handle is stabilised applewood from Nash, South Shropshire. I treat the handles with linseed oil, giving it a nice waterproof finish. It will benefit from a light re-application from time to time. Do not put your knife through the dishwasher as this will damage the handle and the blade. Your knife can be sharpened on a stone if you wish and it will hold a very sharp edge but I think the edge I have set is more than sharp enough for cheese.

Named after Jonny and Dulcie Crickmore from Fenn Farm Dairy in Suffolk. Fantastic traditional cheesemakers and supporters of British craft. Their Baron Bigod is the UK's only raw milk Brie. A particular favourite here at Sytch Farm Studios. Although its plenty sharp enough to deal with hard cheeses, The Crickmore was very much designed as a knife for spreading soft cheese.
