Berti Italian Cigar Knife
For a clean trim.
Handmade in Italy since 1895, each Berti knife is created by one artisan from start to finish—the initials of the artist appear on the blade. Each hand-forged blade is exceptionally sharp and, with proper care, will last for generations. The cigar knife is a foldable, traditional Italian cigar cutter that makes the perfect guillotine slice but doubles as a pocket knife.
Each knife comes with twine and a box of matches, as the company believes that no one should ever leave the house without the tools for “cutting, binding and illumination.” Consider yourself prepared.
