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 laser cut, full tang Pontormo knife can be used for cheese, meat or vegetables. The angle of the blade allows for greater force with less effort. The rounded cutting blade can be used as a mezzaluna and the width of the blade allows for cut items to be easily picked up. Available with a handle made of Boxwood, Cornotech, red Lucite or black Lucite and comes with a wood storage block.
