No. 460 Hard Cheese Knife by Berti

The No. 460 Hard Cheese Knife by Berti has a broad blade strong enough to carry the necessary force to cut through wheels of hard cheeses. Force should be applied on the handle, using two hands when cutting particularly firm cheeses, pressing on the spine only if absolutely necessary. Cutting straight down with uniform pressure and balance keeps the cheese from breaking at the end of the cut. 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.

Handles: Boxwood

Total Length: 15.6"

    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.
