Details

A new designer for an original new entry in the Alessi Encyclopaedia. A sensitive designer with a long-standing interest in metals and the stylistic possibilities they offer, Anita Dineen has designed a Cheese knife produced from a single piece of cut and moulded stainless steel sheet metal.

“Antechinus” is a series of formal references: its lines recall both the stylized forms of a slice of cheese and those of a little mouse intent on enjoying his favourite food. In fact, the Antechinus, a little mouse native to Australia, was Dineen’s inspiration for this object whose formal aspects are perfectly balanced with its functional aspects.

The “Antechinus” Knife is produced from a 1.5 mm thick sheet of AISI 420 steel. The type and thickness of the steel make this product particularly resistant and suitable for all types of cheese.

This resistance, together with the fact that both sides of the blade are sharpened, also make it suitable for use as a cheese cutter for mature cheeses like parmesan or pecorino. The “Antechinus” is mirror finished and part of the “Objets-Bijoux” collection
