Soft Cheese Knife — Perfect for your über-kitchen friend with every* utensil known to man

From the website:

AboutUsBanner

FunFact: The original prototype for this knife was created in 1940 by engineer Harold Joseph Fairchild, who was looking for the best knife to slice his favorite cheese, Velveeta. Fairchild went on to design military devices for the U.S. Government during World War II. But we're guessing that this simple, effective cheese knife is Fairchild's ultimate claim to fame.

The unique design of this knife allows it to glide effortlessly through cheesecake, soft cheese, cake, and softened butter — perfect for any sticky slicing jobs.

3¾" Ultem® resin blade is set in a soft, comfortable 4" handle.

Heat-resistant to 430°F; stain-resistant; dishwasher-safe.

$17.95 (sure, cheesecake included — you want cherry or chocolate chip? Get outa here.)

*Almost. Heh.

Ooh, Flautist, you're spot-on: An element of Oldenburgian whimsy, to be sure.

Hmmm...there's something odd about 'soft cheese knife'. 'Butter knife', too, for that matter. I don't know, kind of like 'peanut butter saw' or 'coffee scissors'.

Oh, never mind.
