Compendio Slicing Knives with Grey Blades and Lucite Handles by Berti

Compendio Slicing Knives by Berti are perfect for carving meats and poultry, as well as slicing sandwiches, vegetables and fruits. Slicing knives are similar to carving knives, however they have long, thin blades with either a round or pointed tip, which differs from carving knives.

With a more flexible blade than a carving knife, slicing knives are used to cut thinner slices of roast, fruits and vegetables. Occasionally these knives have granton edges preventing meat from tearing during the slice.

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 completion.

    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.
