Friday 16 Dec 2005: Cheese slicer
Contrary to popular belief, the cheese slicer (kaasschaaf in Dutch) was not invented by a frugal Dutchman, but by the Norwegian carpenter Thor Bjørklund, who submitted a patent request for it on the 27th of February 1925. To commemorate the 80th anniversary of this kitchen utensil, the Norwegian company founded by Mr Bjørklund, Thor Bjørklund & Sønner AS, added a replica of the original slicer to their product line in February 2005
