This is a Herb knife from Coltellerie Berti from the series Coltelli da Cucina Plexiglas Rosso,
with a blade length of 17 cm and a handle of Red Plexiglas.
Coltellerie Berti is a chef’s knife manufacturer that has been making 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.
Stainless X50CrMoV15 steel with a particularly high carbon content, which is drop-forged by hand, is used as the blade steel.
The blade hardness achieved is in the range of 55-57 HRC with a very fine grain, which ensures the blade a long-lasting cutting stability.
The hardening process is carried out in three cycles to achieve maximum hardness, toughness and the finest microstructure.
The blade is hand ground in three stages to achieve a convex geometry.
The handle material used consists of solid plexiglass in the color rosso, whose curved shape adapts very harmoniously to the hand adapts.
The Plexiglas Rosso is pressed seamlessly onto the tang, glued and fixed with 3 brass rivets. 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 hand.
Precise workmanship and attention to detail characterize this beautiful kitchen knife series from Coltellerie Berti.
