Coltellerie Berti Paring Knife

Part of our favorite family of Coltellerie Berti knives, we've found this paring knife well suited for seeding serrano chiles, trimming mushrooms, peeling cucumbers, slicing berries, and other delicate work. It's Heidi's favorite knife for slicing cake.  Its smooth Lucite handle rests steadily in hand as you guide the blade through exacting tasks.  

Hand made of high-carbon stainless steel, this knife has the strength of carbon steel along with the durability, flexibility, and corrosion resistance of stainless. The quality of the steel and the care with which Berti knives are made ensure that, with proper maintenance, this knife can accompany you through your culinary life.

David Berti began crafting knives in 1895, in the Tuscan countryside. Today, the Berti tradition still requires that each knife is the complete work of a sole craftsman. The hands that begin the work finish it. This means each knife crafted is unique, and contains the thought, the hand, and the expertise of an individual shaper. Every knife from Berti bears the initials of the craftsman who made it.

Care: Wipe the knife’s blade with a clean cloth or wash it gently after each use, avoiding harsh detergents or scrubbers. Dry the blade after washing; because the steel has high carbon content, its resistance to corrosion and oxidation is not absolute. The white Lucite handle is extremely durable—that said, we recommend hand washing your knife, drying it, and storing it somewhere it doesn't come into contact with other objects or utensils.

Each Coltellerie Berti knife ships in a beautiful gift-worthy box.
