Important things you have to remember choosing a cheese board:

  • Cutlery

Cheeseboards are made of a variety of materials: plastic, marble, wooden, slate, stone, or even glass. But what material is the best one to choose as each of them has its pros and cons? In our opinion, the best material for cutlery board is bamboo and let us give you a short explanation of our choice.

Bamboo has its natural antibacterial properties, even those few that penetrates the surface, making bamboo just the right fit in the appearance of safety for your health and a “superpower” to prevent a large charcuterie board from a nasty smell and mixing the tastes of products you use on your wood charcuterie board. A durable bamboo structure will also keep your wood charcuterie board good as new for years with just a breeze of care.

In conclusion: your crackers won’t taste like Brie, and you will be safe from getting stomach trouble.

  • Spreader knife
  • Serving knife
  • Heart knife
  • Thin knife
  • Chisel knife
  • Pronged knife
  • Cocktail forks (would be a great addition for a cutlery board and a huge benefit if included)
