Berti was founded over 100 years ago by David Berti as an artisan workshop. Today his great grandson Andrea is in charge of the workshop which is located in the Tuscan countryside, 25 miles north of Florence. The Berti family proudly hand make their knives, using the same techniques and materials - like ox horn, boxwood and steel - since 1895. Each knife is made by the same craftsman, from start to finish. His or her initials are then engraved onto the knife's blade.
