Slate is a natural material and each piece has its own characteristics. In addition to the marks, lines and veins, which are exposed as the product is shaped, there may also be some variation in color and speckles. Each piece of slate is uniquely beautiful. This Swiss mar 6 Piece Slate Cheese Marker Set is perfect for marking the cheeses you've set out for your guests. The set includes 4 cheese markers and two pieces of chalk. Simply write the name of the cheese on the slate and stick into the cheese with the sharp pointed base. Once the night is over, simply wash the slate markers with a damp cloth.
