Build a block for knives that chop.

Combining stunningly modern design with red lucite handles and centuries-old technique, these Berti knives have been handmade in Italy since 1895. One artisan creates each knife from start to finish, and the initials of the artist appear on the blade. The hand-forged blades are exceptionally sharp and, with the proper care, will last for generations. A Berti knife is an heirloom to pass down and use daily, making your cooking easier and prettier.

To protect and display your knives, Berti has designed ingenious individual knife blocks that magnetize to one another, so you can create your own collection with only the knives you need. We love the versatility, and how much room it saves on our countertops (you can even slip the individual blocks into your drawers). A black pictogram of the knife, and its name in italian, is printed on the front of each block, so you’ll never again reach for a handle without knowing which blade you’re unsheathing. Berti calls this system Insieme, or “together” in Italian.
