for the full story. I will be taking pre-orders for curd knives. If I don't get enough orders I don't think I'll be able to afford to make them. For the 1/2" size I'll need 8 orders and same for the 1/4".
Normally a set of 2 professional curd knives 24" x 36" are $2000.

Please post orders here or PM me or email me. The ordering process is tell me how many and then PM or email me your phone number and address. I will not collect money until they are finished. I do need money before I mail them of course. I accept Paypal. I will give you a total including shipping when they are finished. Once I get the required number of orders I will post saying I have started and it will probably take me a week to finish them and send them out.
A lot of this is just for the materials besides the mesh itself. There is a lot of construction in it as well. And even though the smaller ones use less material it still takes the same amount of time to construct. These Prices are only for Cheeseforum members that have joined up until today's date. These are labor intensive so I'm just making these at this price for the current members. I'm going to try to sell some to the online cheese making supply stores and those will retail for about $200 - $300 or so. Not sure yet on pricing.
Custom Sizes available but I recommend Pro Model #2 as it will be more versatile and easier to handle. If you notice online videos of cheese making they don't use a curd knife as big as their vats. The move the knife around until they get all the curds.
I will provide clear written instruction on how to use and care for as well as a warranty. I will also have an online video showing how to use it effectively.
I'm looking to manufacturing Cheese Presses for home and professional, hoops for cheese molding with customized followers.
*****ATTENTION I didn't join this board to make money or sell any of my items, it just came about because people were asking. I plan on being a contributing member of this forum as long as I'm making cheese. I don't want people to think I've had an ulterior motive. Work for me right now is so slow I'm on the verge of going broke. So it's something to do and make a little money. I also have honestly priced these items WAY below what I would charge the public.
I will repost this in the selling section, John (CH) if I have violated any rule let me know and I'll stop posting stuff for sale. Thanks.
