Berti handmade folding pocket knives are made in Italy by expert blacksmiths and knife makers. Each knife is made by the same artisan from start to finish and each blade is stamped with the artisan's initials. Berti folding pocket knives are made with ox horn, buffalo horn or box wood handles and the blades are made up of an equal mix of carbon and steel to maintain their sharp edge. For the knife connoisseurs, the blades are 420b.
Coltellerie Berti has been making handmade pocket knives since 1895 and are renown for their craftsmanship and quality of their knives. The knives are designed to be comfortable, light-weight, ultra sharp and each knife has a cutting purpose. Made of top-quality materials and made with the utmost of care and attention, Berti knives are heirloom-quality. They make great gifts for vintners, farmers or agriculturists, writers, cigar lovers and for the knife or blade enthusiast--of course.
While Berti knives are not inexpensive, they are completely handmade from beginning to end. Berti knives are not mass produced in any way. Each knife piece is handcrafted for the particular folding pocket knife being made by the knife maker. Berti makes knives for self-defense, gardening, farm work, cutting cigars and many more applications. They are handsome to their core, but will last many lifetimes even with hard use.
Most Berti pocket knives were originally intended for use by shepherds, farm workers, hunters or anyone who needed a sharp cutting instrument in their day's work. They needed to be strong, sharp and reliable and rarely left the owner's side and was guarded by the owner. Berti revives this tradition and you will love the knives Berti makes.
Since Berti pocket knives are hand-made, most orders generally take 4-6 weeks to ship.
