No. 195 Guillotine Cigar Cutter with Wood Base by Berti

The No. 195 Guillotine Cigar Cutter with Wood Base by Berti is perfect for the cigar connoisseur. The founder of the Berti family was a great appreciator of the Toscano cigars, and it is to him that the Coltellerie Berti's table cigar cutter is dedicated. In David Berti's lifetime during the late nineteenth century, cutting cigars was a necessity and not just a preference. 

Berti knives are handmade in Italy by skilled artisans with the technique used since 1895. The knives are forged out of stainless steel and are made with the highest craftsmanship. Berti artisans create knives with the integrity and authenticity that cannot result from mass production. The same craftsman that begins a knife takes it all the way through to the completion.

Elm base: 8/10" hole

Handle: Ox horn

Blade type: Half Tang - This type of handle is in two halves and then anchored to the blade, one on each side. Half tang knives go the length of the knife handle, but only half the width of it.  

Total length: 6.9"

Blade length: 2.4"

    Care: It is advisable to clean with a damp cloth. Dry it carefully and immediately after cleaning. It is very useful from time to time to lubricate the point of rotation of the blade with Vaseline oil.

    Berti was founded as an artisan workshop by David Berti in 1895, and today, under the guidance of his great grandson Andrea, it continues its production in the Tuscan countryside, 25 miles north of Florence, Italy.

    The essence of the Berti family tradition since 1895 is this: the artisan that starts making a knife takes it right through to the finishing touches. There is no division of labor. Each knife is the finished work of a sole artisan, and it bears his, or her initials on the knife’s blade.

    Berti still uses the same manufacturing techniques and materials, ox horn, boxwood and steel, that have been used since 1895. Their intent is to make knives with integrity and authenticity that cannot result from industrialized production, while offering some of the finest cutting tools in the world. A Berti knife is an heirloom.
