Tagliagrana (Parmesan Knife)
This dagger shaped blade known as a “Tagliagrana” is essential for a good fromagerie, italian restaurant or serious cheese-nerd. The thick blade is used to crack into the hard crust of wheels of hard cheese, such as parmesan and grana-padano. This knife is also perfect for chipping of shards of hard cheese, so you can avoid damaging your beautiful Japanese kitchen knives on them.

Arcos Hermanos S.A.
The brand officially began in 1745 with Juan Arcos, who forged blades now found in the National Archeological Museum in Madrid. The craft continued through the family line until Gregoria Arcos Aroco who turned the small hand-forging shop into a fully mechanized production shop for high-quality spanish blades in 1875. One hundred years down the road, his descendant Gregorio Arcos Villanueva desired more and began the expansion of Arcos into the International brand that it is today. Through nearly 300 years of manufacturing, the family has never ceased their innovation.
