COLTELLERIE BERTI has a long history of steel, fire and skilled hands. It was founded as an artisan workshop by David Berti in 1895 and today, under the guidance of his great grandson Andrea, it continues its production in the Tuscan countryside, 25 miles north of Florence, Italy.
Coltellerie Berti makes handmade knives by skilled artisans using the same manufacturing techniques and materials that were used since 1895. Each knife is taken from start to finish by the same artisan and as a symbol of their pride each blade bares his or her initials.
Coltellerie Berti creates knives with integrity and authenticity that cannot result from industrialized production. The end result is some of the finest cutting tools in the world. In a word, a Berti knife is an heirloom.
The Compendio blades are made using a mix of Carbon Steel & Stainless Steel and then finished with Lucite Handles. The new blade technology allows for a lighter blade than a forged knife while still offering exceptional performance. The unique convex shape of the blade allows for the edge to remain sharper for a longer period of time. This is Berti's newest blade technology that still delivers high performance for discerning customers while allowing for a unique and modern new look.
