Watch more with these video collections:

At home, cheese is usually cut with a sharp knife. When you’re a cheesemonger, a professional who specializes in selling cheese and other dairy products, there are a wide variety of tools that you might use in a day to make and cut all of the available cheesesβ€”from soft mozzarellas to 80-pound cheese wheels with thick, fire-branded rinds.

Tools include machetes and scimitars, industrial meat slicers, two-handled harp wires, a chitarra that looks like a stringed musical instrument, and a little raclette grill that melts cheese with heat from a few tealights.
