    AJ I thought this was good - Warning: This is well the PURE-KOMACHI series (MADE IN JAPAN)
    not to be confused with the Pure-Komachi-2 series (made in China)

    It seems you guy`s have never cut a block of cream cheese ?
    Sticks to the knife even with wetting I only get half way through and if the wrapper breaks, well it smushes down and I lose a 1/4
    The only one I found was the Wusthof Soft Cheese Knife

    Ichi, the wusthoff cheese knife is a good one. But to be honest the one from bed bath ans beyond does just fine for 50 bucks less. You are not really looking for the ultimate edge in a cheese knife, it is doubtful it will ever need to be sharpened. Something thin without drag is fine. I have been using my 5 dollar cheese knife for almost a decade and I use it often. Good luck in your search.

    I have a feeling Ichi is referring to the restaurant sized blocks of cream cheese, which are like 2.5" x 2.5" x 10". They also have a thick plastic wrapper instead of the foil.

    Have you tried a thin and long suji with very hot water to do the wetting of the blade? One draw through pull cut should get you through the plastic and cheese no problem.
