He who starts it finishes it…and initials it with his initials. And declares its value.
At Coltellerie Berti, each knife is produced by the hands of a single craftsman, the same person.
Whoever starts it, finishes it. This is the essence of the Berti Family’s Craftsmanship Method, which since 1895 has maintained the true joy of owning a real handmade knife in the wake of the most authentic Tradition, and work in a truly human condition.
And it is to state this emphatically, that from today, every Berti knife will bear the initials of the craftsman who produced it engraved on the blade.
“Insieme” (Together) is a Coltellerie Berti Patent: Every single knife block is equipped with 4 powerful neodymium magnets that allow them to be joined together, simply by bringing them closer together, using magnetic force.
They can be put together and reassembled as and when you wish, buying the knives you need from time to time and updating the collection as your needs change.
Roasting knife: with sharp, curved blade tip. Large cutting capacity to avoid crumbling or breaking slices. No sawing.
The blades are obtained by hot forging with a mallet, once the only way to guarantee a good cutting quality (the blows of the mallet break up and order the steel molecules) today they are highly prized for their beautiful and elegant appearance.
Made with a full tang, i.e. the blade is a single piece running through the entire handle, they have a satin-finished blade surface finish.
Produced entirely by hand in small quantities and without division of labour, those who start them finish them:
on each blade you will find the initials of the craftsman who made them.
The heat treatment also includes subcooling to -80 °C to guarantee maximum cutting capacity and durability.
Fork: complementing the slicing knife, it is designed to hold what we are slicing. The blades are obtained by hot forging with a mallet, once the only way to guarantee a good cutting quality (the blows of the mallet break up and order the steel molecules) today they are highly appreciated for their beautiful and elegant appearance.
