Coltellerie Berti Bread Knife
This bread knife lives alongside one of our favorite chef's knives. It's what you want in a bread knife - long (and tough) enough to handle oversized crusty loaves with ease, while still elegant and lightweight. It's a work horse in the kitchen and beautiful on the bread board at the table.
With a smooth Lucite handle and serrated, high-carbon stainless steel blade, this knife possesses the strength of carbon steel plus 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 will follow 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 smooth and 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.
