Regarding this, why do knives have holes in the blade?
Some knives have holes to reduce friction on the side of the blade and make the food less likely to stick to the blade. This is fairly common on cheese knives. Some knives just have holes as part of their style and the holes do not serve any real purpose.
Also, which cheese knife is for which cheese? A semi hard cheese knife is ideal for Fontina, Emmenthal, Gruyere, Cheddar, Colby, Edam, Gouda, and many blue cheeses.
Beside above, what are the prongs on a cheese knife for?
The prongs at the end of the knife are used for serving. The holes in the knife prevent cheese from sticking to the blade. used when splitting or "breaking” a parmesan cheese. Prongs are used for serving soft and medium-hard cheeses.
Are cheese knives necessary?
The short answer is no, but they're nice to have. You can certainly eat, serve and enjoy cheese without any special tools. But if you like to entertain and serve cheese to guests, a few cheese knives are quite handy and add a special touch to your cheese board.
