Coltellerie Berti pontormo knife with wood block. 
Il Pontormo
: In the Renaissance, in the days of Pontormo, when dining, people normally used their own knives, faithful companions also in hunting, defense and travel. Coltellerie Berti, drawing inspiration from a painting by Pontormo, has faithfully reproduced these very soft yet strong shapes, making a unique knife: the Pontormo. Entirely handmade in Italy using the best German steel. The blade bears the initials of the craftsman who made it. The long and complex process used to make it involves fifteen steps of hand-working, special heat treatment and three steps of sharpening. You can use it for cheese, meat or vegetables. Its blade is bent compared to the handle so you can apply greater force with less fatigue. The rounded cutting part can be used as a mezzaluna and the special width of the blade allows one to pick up cut material easily. This knife comes with a beech wood block. 
The surface finish of the blade is mirrored by hand. Produced completely  by hand in small quantities, the crafstmen  who start them finish them: on each blade you will find the initials of the craftsman who made them. The heat treatment also includes under-cooling at -80 ° C in order to guarantee maximum capacity and duration of the cut. Folding knives, even when made with Plexiglas handles cannot be washed  in the dishwasher. It is advisable to clean with a damp cloth or if it is necessary to wash by hand with water  (max. 40 ° C). Dry it carefully and immediately after cleaning. Please consider as follows:
1. The dishwasher quickly ages any object washed in it.
2.  The higher the quality, the less the blade will be stainless
3. the blades may stain with small reddish spots or with large bluish halos:
a. if left to drain or dry in the dishwasher
b. if left dirty for a long time after use
c. if the the water is rich in iron
4. a good hand wash and a careful drying after washing are the secret to keep your knives at their best.
5. hand wash and immediate drying are MANDATORY for knives with horn handles, wood or other natural materials.
6. Do not wash with aggressive detergents or water at temperatures above 60 ° C.
