The story behind Berti’s heirloom-worthy knives is as enchanting as it gets: It all started back in 1895, when David Berti opened up shop in the Tuscan countryside. Well over a century later, his great-grandson Andrea keeps the family tradition going, using the very same materials as years ago (read: ox horn, boxwood, and steel). The best bit? Every knife is completely handmade by a single artisan, and finished off with the maker’s initials on the blade—wow.
