No. 45 Rasolino Tagliasigari Cigar Cutter with Ox Horn Handle by Berti

The No. 45 Rasolino Tagliasigari Cigar Cutter by Berti has a pointless blade, or "cut" blade as the name translates to. This knife style became popular after a law passed in 1908 that prohibited knives with pointed blades longer than 4 centimeters (about 1.5"). Due to the Giolitti law of 1908, this knife was created, and the blade limit for the style was 10 cm, (about 4 ") allowing people to carry a longer blade "by law" thus increasing the popularity. The Rasolino knife style originates from the region of Sicily.

Regional knives are pocket knives that have a distinct style based on what region the knife comes from. There are 20 regions in Italy, and each region produces a different knife style.

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.
