Boska Knows Slicers
Over 100 years of Boska’s experience and passion have been integrated into this cheese slicer, which was designed especially for harder cheeses. The blade of the cheese slicer is made out of one piece of high quality stainless steel. This makes the blade extra sturdy and durable. Even after intense use, the slicer will stay sharp for years!
While you’re slicing, the cheese slicer will slightly bend with you. That enables you to create even more beautiful slices. The cheese won’t stick to the slicer. Is the cheese slicer dirty? Toss it in the dishwasher, and you’ll be good to go again!

We have kept on to several older cheese slicer models for very many decades. They still slice cheese in nice planes without causing waves or curling up. Their brand names and origin are respectively, "SPAR from Norway" (cutting slices also a bit too thin, but without curling up and wrinkling), "KN (Karlsson & Nilsson) from Sweden" (produces the very best slice thickness and without any curling or wrinkling), and "Brabantia from the Netherland" (a short-plane slicer for very-young, moist Gouda-type cheeses, with good thickness and without curling or waves). These are from outstanding stainless-steel quality. We tried yet another bigger one from "Cuisinart" which slices so super-thick that it has become our cheese-slicer joke as being better suited for tree debarking by a lumberjack in Alaska.
When acquiring the right model, this type of slicer in one piece may last for a generation or longer. The models with a separate handle will undoubtedly separate over time when using a dishwasher. So consider spending the few extra bucks for the more presentable version in one piece. Granted, the price of this slicer is very steep considering its mediocre quality, but when used daily over te coming decades it may still be reasonable.
In response to some other reviews, especially not cutting Cheddar etc., mind that this type of slicers was originally developed for slicing Dutch "young" and "maturing" cheeses. Young cheese may still be a little too moist which makes slicing with any slicer more difficult because the slice tends to stick to all surfaces. In that respect, this Boska Cheese Slicer does not do a good job either. For that kind of very-young Dutch cheese there are identical, but shorter-plane slicers developed (that is, without that big "D" above the sharp slit).
For twenty bucks, this turned out to be a phenomenally huge disappointment, more so from a Dutch company that should know quite better. Instead of drilling that "quaint distinctive hole" in the slicer plane, they should have focussed on developing an actual working product; it's not rocket science!
Unlike the types with a wooden handle, this can be thrown into the dishwasher with no adverse effects. The handle and the slicing portion are noticeably sharper than I have observed on other cheese slicers of this type. The edge which actually slices through the cheese is very sharp, almost no pressure is required in order to pull this across a cheese. Even a rather firm cheese, such as a Jarlsberg, can be sliced readily and without the irksome crooked, dragging, and pulling, that other slicers require to slice a hard cheese.
This is a good, basic tool, yet beautifully streamlined, this can be placed on a cheeseboard when guests are present, it is that nice. I recommend this slicer, it costs a bit more, but. It lasts much longer, and does a superior job of slicing cheese.
I became excited about the Boska because of the positive reviews, but was soon disappointed. While it is definitely better than any other slicer I've bought in the US, it still doesn't quite make the cut, haha. Its best point is that it doesn't skip across the top of the Tillamook medium cheddar we love so much, as other blades have done. But the Boska doesn't cut smoothly, and that's the rub. It leaves a funky textured path in its wake, and it's also rather a hard pull compared to my trusty Swedish souvenir (actually made by Spar, a Norwegian company).
I compared the blades visually. I think the difference between great slicers and so-so ones is the angle of the cutting edge. Many make the mistake of trying to slice too much cheese at once; i.e., the cutting edge lies at too sharp an angle from the plane of the slicer. My older slicer cuts smooth, thin slices because its blade tilts ever so gently from the straight of the plane.
Which leaves me still searching. Thank goodness my old Spar still has some life left in it, and this Boska will certainly do the job, if inelegantly.
Perhaps this slicer would work better for softer cheeses, such as havarti. Haven't tried it on anything softer than the Tillamook cheddar mentioned above. Hope this helps.
