Berti Insieme Set of Five Knives - Red Lucite
Berti has a long history of steel, fire, and skilled hands. It 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 this 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.
The handle is made of hand-polished lucite, with a carbon and stainless-steel blade. Each knife comes with a magnetized wood block, labeled with a pictogram and Italian description of the knife it houses. Store your knife and block alone in a drawer, or connect magnetically with other Insieme knives to showcase them on your countertop.
This set of 5 knives will handle whatever your kitchen demands, from thinly slicing soft tomatoes to even the most work-intensive mise en place.

Care & Use:
To clean your knives after use, hand wash in warm water using liquid dish soap. The blade should never be left to air dry. They are best preserved by avoiding prolonged exposure to water and heat. Dishwashing is not recommended, and careful drying is recommended at all times.
Please handle knives with care at all times, and use them only for their intended use. Avoid inappropriate use, such as a substitution for a screwdriver, which will inevitably damage the blade.
Use the knives only on a wood or plastic cutting surface. Never use your knives on stone, glass or ceramic cutting surfaces.
For Berti knives in need of a little TLC (reconditioning of blades and handles), a maintenance service program is available. Pricing upon request.
