About Coltellerie Berti
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.The Italian artisans of Coltellerie Berti proudly hand make their knives, using traditional methods. Berti knives are so authentically Italian because they are born of the Italian artisan tradition, and the tradition of the Berti Family.
The essence of this tradition since 1895 is this: the artisan that starts making a knife takes it right through to the finishing touches. There is no division of labor. Each knife is the finished work of a sole artisan, and it bares his, or her, initials on the knife's blade.
Berti still uses the same manufacturing techniques and materials, ox horn, boxwood and steel, that they have used since 1895. Their intent is to make knives with integrity and authenticity that cannot result from industrialized production, while offering you some of the finest cutting tools in the world. A Berti knife is an heirloom.
