"Cheese Slicer" Oslo Local Custom Tip by suvanki
Oslo Local Customs: 147 reviews and 243 photos
Before my trip, I'd been informed that the cheese slicer was a Norwegian invention, I love cheese, so this was on my shopping list!
Apparently Thor Bjorklund, (1899 -1975), a carpenter from Lillehammer, was having problems with his packed lunch of cheese, which had melted! A knife was unsuitable for slicing this, but he eventually succeeded, by using a nearby plane.
Later, after experimenting with small sheets of metal, he designed the Cheese slicer. Friends and family pursuaded him to manufacture this.
On February 27th 1925, a patent was taken out . (Feb. 2005, being the 80th anniversary)
