– The Cheese Knife by W&P Design LLC Receives Honor at Summer 2017 Market –

NEW YORK, NY. – August 21 2017 – NY NOW®, the Market for Home, Lifestyle + Gift, in conjunction with HGTV Magazine announced today the winner of the “Best in Market” Award. The Cheese Knife by W&P Design, LLC received the recognition at the NY NOW summer 2017 market and is on display now in the Accent on Design® section (Booth #3861) at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

We’re incredibly honored to receive the Best in Market distinction from NY NOW and HGTV Magazine for The Cheese Knife,” said Josh Williams, Co-Founder, W&P Design, LLC. “It really is the perfect accessory for enjoying cheese and charcuterie at home and we’re so excited to share this with others to enjoy, especially during the holiday season.”

The Cheese Knife is designed to be the only knife needed for your cheeseboard. Carefully crafted from hardwood, brass and brushed stainless steel, the knife is equipped to handle soft to firm chesses. The broad blade allows users to slice and spread soft cheeses, while the sharpened edge cuts cleanly through firm chesses. It also has a pointed edge to break off pieces of hard cheeses.

The “Best in Market” Award recognizes one extraordinary product that stood out among the ten category winners of the “Best New Product” Awards. This year, the ten category winners from the “Best New Product” Awards were evaluated by Kate Doherty, Market Director of HGTV Magazine, before a winner was selected.

“NY NOW never ceases to amaze me with its variety of beautiful and truly unique product offerings,” said Doherty. “This was a very tough decision to make as all of the section winners were remarkable – but my favorite was The Cheese Knife from W&P Design LLC because you can throw out all of those specialty cheese knives that are cluttering up your drawer – it’s the only one you’re going to need!”

NY NOW’s summer 2017 market is currently underway and will continue through Wednesday, August 23. For more information, visit
