Haha don't tell the Dutch. Endless debate about who invented it. Personally I'm more interested in who invented television or the internet..

er den ord høvel ikke en verktøy til å arbeide trevirke? Derfor, kunne jeg ikke sier at osthøvelen er "cheese plane" på Engelsk? Takk

No, in English you would call it a cheese slicer. We do indeed call the equivalent tool in woodworking a plane, but it doesn't translate to kitchen tools!

Funny, we bought one in Norway 20 years ago, use it frequently on brunost and have called it a cheese plane for all those years. If you can plane wood, you should be able to plane cheese ;-)

Actually I call it a "cheese slice", by analogy with cake slice (which doesn't mean a slice of cake but something used for slicing and serving it).
