German knife manufacturer Robert Herder designs Fromaĝo, a series of cheese knives for professional use.
Its functionality, ergonomics, and high manufacturing quality are the focus and are conveyed creatively through a clear, dynamic design.
This collection of cheese knives has been awarded a 2021 Good Design Award by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
In close cooperation with the renowned Fromagerie Guillaume, the design team approached the requirements for the daily cutting of different types of cheese.
In the course of the development, the optimal geometries, materials, and cuts could be defined.
All four knives are light and comfortable to use and thus simplify daily work.
The hand-worked blades have finely ground surfaces with either polished waves or a particularly sharp polished cutting edge.
The tapered handles are made of local plum wood and are traditionally shaped by hand and carefully oiled.
The names of the Fromaĝo series — Kapro, Pano, Mola, and Ĉio — were borrowed from the universal language Esperanto and symbolize a culinary united World.
