Amitto is an all-around cheese slicer from Hardanger Bestikk. This particular slicer is especially suitable for slicing extra thin slices without sticking. It is made of stainless steel.
Thor Bjørklund was a Norwegian furniture maker who had long felt a big frustration because he could not get the thin cheese slices he wanted. With a little inspiration from the hand plane in his carpenter workshop, he invented the cheese slicer which he patented in 1925, and the cheese slicer has been a popular tool in most homes in the Nordic region ever since.
