This is a Chef's knife from Coltellerie Berti from the series Coltelli da Cucina,
with a blade length of 20 cm and a handle of Plexiglass Crema Stainless Steel Rivets.
Coltellerie Berti Pro Plexiglass Crema a kitchen knife forge that has been producing fine knives in Scarperia Florence Italy for over 100 years. Berti creates the finest blades with precision craftsmanship.
Great importance is attached to the excellent processing of various local, traditional types of wood, buffalo and other types of horn. The blade steel used, which is drop-forged by hand, is X50CrMoV15 stainless steel with a particularly high carbon content.
The blade hardness achieved is in the range of 55-57 HRC with a very fine granulometry, which ensures the blade has a long-lasting cutting stability. The hardening process is carried out in three cycles to achieve maximum hardness, toughness and the finest microstructure.
The grinding of the blade is done by hand in three phases to achieve a convex geometry. The handle material used consists of Plexiglas in the color crema, and is seamlessly and firmly riveted with three stainless steel rivets on the tang.
This handle construction of the Coltellerie Berti Pro Plexiglass Crema series is optimized for professional use in kitchens. The handle material meets the highest HACCP guidelines and is particularly durable.
Each blade is handcrafted by a coltellier and then stamped with his initials. The knives are very well balanced and, thanks to the shapely handle, lie elegantly and securely in the user’s hand.
Precision craftsmanship and attention to detail characterize this beautiful kitchen knife series from Coltellerie Berti.
