Say Cheese

Get a handle on cheese with this hand-forged, steel slicer. Hammered from recycled steel using traditional blacksmithing techniques by Al Stephens in Northern Alabama, its hefty weight and arched shape slices through hard and soft cheeses alike with sharp, clean strokes. Rich with craftsmanship, form and function, this rustic piece is meant for lifelong use.

Al Stephens

created by

Al Stephens

After almost 20 years of high-production industry work in St. Louis, MO, Al Stephens discovered the art of blacksmithing while on a visit to an historic Illinois site.

Volunteering in his park's 19th century blacksmith shop trained him in time-honored techniques that earned him full-time blacksmithing employment. His success in creating contemporary hand-forged items has extended from retail to gallery settings.

This diverse background of trade work, historic technique and modern shop knowledge serves as the foundation for his one-of-a-kind, hand-forged steel items.

In 2000, Stephens launched his own shop in Pennsylvania. Currently, his home and shop are based in Alabama.

              Comments about Hand-Forged Cheese Slicer:

              This does not cut cheese at all because of the ends of the horseshoe shape. It does not go all the way down on the block, therefore, does not cut the cheese. Totally useless!!

                Very easy to clean and a nice size. Pretty enough for a party or to leave out in the kitchen ready for use. My husband is a big cheese snacker and he loves it.
