Some people just want to watch the world burn.

    He seems to say ostes-skærer

    What is a cheese slicer in this context? I assumed osteskaerer was a cheese knife as, in England, a cheese slicer is the cheese wire device used in the delicatessen. Do other English speaking nations call the knife with the curved and pronged end a cheese slicer?

    This:

    And here it is in action (though a different shape it seems to work in the same way):

    It might be a cheese grater that includes a slicer element (one piece of metal, with or without a plastic/wood surround)

    It's not a knife nor a wiry thing, it's a cheese slicer :) I don't know how to explain better, maybe it's mostly used here in Scandinavia then?

    No, in the US a cheese slicer is either the wire thing as shown or what we call a cheese plane.
