The Bamboo Cheese Set

This is exactly the kind of thing I'd walk by in the store without even noticing, a bamboo cheese set. But my partner in tools, Mac Dalton, became obsessed with it and urged me to give it some time.

He was right, there was something really cool about this whole package and design that's deeply appealing.  It contains two different sized spreaders a fork and a knife, so it's useful, but it's also compact so it doesn't take up much space. But what I love most may be the fact that, just like our meat mallet, it's a cool object to look at even when it's not in use. That it's made of bamboo, a renewable resource, is the final reason I love this product. It's handy and handsome at home, and makes a lasting and thoughtful gift.

I'm not a shopper by nature so I'm glad Mac was persistent! The regular retail on this product is $10.95 - a real savings!
