When in Amsterdam...there is no shortage of cheese. The country is the largest exporter of cheese in the world. This means there is no shortage of cheese cutters and slicers.
Over the weekend the world's most expensive cheese cutter was taken from the Cheese Museum in Amsterdam, RTL Nieuwes reports.
The cheese slicer is valued at 25 000 euros or 28 000 US dollars. The kitchen implement is highly valued because it was designed by Argentinian jeweller Rodrigo Otazu and the piece contains the 220 Gassan diamonds. Otazu jewellery has been worn by stars such as Madonna, Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez.
The cheese cutter was in the exhibition of the Amsterdam Cheese Museum which is metres from the world famous Anne Frank House. The expensive implement was locked in a display case. A worker alerted police to the robbery at the end of the work day once the empty cabinet was discovered.
Video footage is reported to expose two suspects braking the display case and fleeing the scene with the cheese slicer and of course some cheese. The suspects remain at large and anony-mouse.
When in Amsterdam...enjoy!
