Coltellerie Berti has a long history of steel, fire and skilled handles. It was an handicraft workshop founded in 1895 by David Berti in Scarperia, in the Mugello area 30 kilometers north of Florence. We manufacture handicraft Italian knives. Hand made, in Italy, by us. Italian because entirely and exclusively made in Italy, and this is quite evident, but also because our knives strictly belong to our own Tradition, the Tradition of the Berti Family and, therefore, really Italian. This is the essence of the craftsman’s tradition
held in the Berti family since 1895: whoever starts the work takes it right through to the finishing touches. There is no labour division, each knife is the finished work of a sole craftsman bears the initials of the craftsman who made it We still use the same manufacturing techniques and the same materials, ox horn, box wood, steel used at the time of the Foundation of the Company, in the late 1800’s, because we want to maintain the production as it has always been with the intent to obtain on the final product the shine and the authenticity that surely cannot be obtained with industrialized production. This because we love Tradition and we are convinced that all our efforts should be dedicated in renewing the Tradition to grant its survival. To evidence its true core and preserve it as in the original version. For this reason, our best-seller item, Convivio Nuovo” is also available with Lucite handle. Made by hand.
