FLORENCE, ITALY | CUTLERY
The Coltellerie Berti is a family-run business designing and producing handmade knives for over a hundred years. Founded in the 19th century by David Berti in Scarperia, a little north of Florencia, the Coltellerie Berti provides first-class blades, 100% “Made in Italy”. This unique skill has been proudly handed down from father to son for four generations. David, Severino, Alvaro, and now Andrea have dedicated their lives to creating an enterprise that promotes Italian craft and tradition rather than industrial mass production.
Each blade is forged or laser-cut with high-quality stainless steel or lucite by the same artisan from beginning to end. The handles are also handmade with natural materials such as horn or boxwood, then stamped with the craftsman’s initials. Whether it’s a champagne sabre, a cigar-cutter, or a simple kitchen knife, each creation is handled with care and precision. It is then carefully packaged and shipped around the world to some of the finest restaurants.
