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.
These knives are forged steel with anchored tangs and whole ox horn handles. Made by hand by skilled artisans each knife is a masterpiece in and of itself. The color and hue of the ox horn is a product of the animals diet and nutrition which makes it impossible to have two handles of the same color or flaming. For this reason no 2 handle colors will be the same and the ones purchased will vary from the ones pictured.
