Coltellerie Berti Classic Knife Set
A classic selection of four essential culinary knives from renowned Tuscan atelier Coltellerie Berti. This is a collection of knives to cover most everyday tasks ranging from chopping ingredients and slicing bread, to paring, peeling, and mincing. The four knives come either with the custom Jacob May magnetic knife strip, or without, and include: an 8-inch chef's knife, a serrated bread knife, a paring knife, and a deceptively heavy, substantial cleaver.
These knives are masterful, heirloom-quality pieces that have been crafted using the same techniques and traditions since 1895. They are full-tang (making them incredibly strong), finely balanced, pure expressions of classic aesthetics and impeccable functionality. Each blade is forged of high-carbon stainless steel, possessing the strength of carbon steel along with the flexibility and corrosion resistance of stainless steel. Smooth white Lucite handles are extremely durable and comfortable to hold.
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: Due to the quality of the steel and the care with which Berti knives are made, they will maintain their beauty and utility if cared for properly. Wipe blocks clean with a damp cloth when necessary. Wipe each knife’s blade with a clean cloth or wash it gently after use, avoiding harsh detergents or scrubbers. Dry blades 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 returning it to its block between uses.
Made in Tuscany.
