This darsa cheese knife set is forged from brass and finished in brushed gold or silver. The rustic artisan look adds interest and character. The set is presented in a stylish gift box making it a great gift as well as essential accompaniment to a cheese board. For me, buying things for my home are things I intend to keep for years, if not forever and be able to pass them down to my sibling's kids. Things should 'spark joy' in your home so I buy once, to last!
