Gouda To Great

Alabama artist Al Stephens hammers recycled steel to perfection using time-honored technique to create this old world cheese spreader. Bearing the heft and build of a tool from a bygone era, Stephens imparts a made-for-life quality with design details like an artist's stamp and curled handle.

When it comes to cheese, a long blade slices and spreads with equal zeal while a sturdy handle keeps a grip on form and function. Handmade in Alabama of mild steel.

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