Coltellerie Berti 1895 – Our Products – Artisan Exclusive Knives Handmade in Italy

Wednesday 17th January, 2024 - Bruce Sterling

*As I learn more about steel and hand tools, and the business as a whole is demystified to me, I find these artifacts more interesting rather than less.

*The fad for twenty-first century “MagnaCut steel” is trampling the conventional knife business, so it’s interesting to think about steel knives that can stain, bend and chip. It’s like choosing to drink from frail and delicate wine glasses.
