The Madagascar horn

Traditions must be respected. Including those of others. What associates Coltellerie Berti knives to Africa?

The Zebu. Zebu Horn is used to make the horn handles of all our knives.
Only African Zebus, being working animals, are allowed to live for enough time to let their horns grow long enough to make
items out of them at the natural end of their life.
Processing Zebu Horn is a long and demanding task for the craftsman:
slowly warmed on a low flame, until it becomes soft enough to work, the horn is then cut into a rough shape.
It is then heated again and put into a mould to give its final shape.
It is then pressed for a few minutes. Finally, it is put in cold water, to make its final shape permanent.
It is then polished: first with coarse sandpaper, then with fine sandpaper and damp ash, to make the horn shiny and glossy.
A precious and very beautiful material, wonderful on the table and in the kitchen: this is why
we have chosen this Collection of Complements, entirely crafted by hand in Madagascar.
Because Traditions must be respected. Including those of others.
