These precious knives were once intended for peasants, shepherds, carters and more generally for all those who lived in the countryside. For them, the knife was a tool of work so essential that it would accompany them in every moment of the day and throughout life. Boys established a special relationship with their knife, an object inherited from their fathers. By now, both in the country and in the city, it would seem that everyday life does not require the use of a pocket knife; however, whoever owns one would not deprive of it for any reason in the world. Today, it is possible to rediscover the pleasure of owning an artisan for an everyday use.
Coltellerie Berti is a long "story" made of iron, fire and skilled hands. Coltellerie Berti was founded back in 1895 by David Berti in Scarperia, thirty kilometers north of Florence. Coltellerie Berti manufactures Italian handmade knives, made in Italy.
Their origin is important: all the knives belong to the tradition of the Berti Family, who starts a knife, finishes it and signs it with his initials. There is no division of labor, and every knife is the result of the work of a single craftsman.
Ancient techniques and traditional materials are used (boxwood, horn and steel), typical of the late 19th century, because Coltellerie Berti tries to keep production as it was in the past.
