ThatsArte.com Adds High End Kitchen Knives To Its Handmade Italian Ceramics Business
thatsArte.com announces the launch of table and kitchen knives from Berti, maker of handcrafted cutlery since 1865. The popular store of fine Italian ceramics is fast evolving into a leading online destination for all things handmade in Italy.
“Berti’s knives epitomize the unique assets of the brand “Made in Italy”: first-rate quality, artistry and tradition. We were very impressed by the total lack of division of labor: each knife is handcrafted by a single artisan, from start to finish, in more than 50 different steps and the initials of the actual knife maker are impressed on the blade along with Berti’s signature," said Tiziana Manzetti, co-owner of thatsArte.com.
The uniqueness of this production method has contributed to build the strong reputation of Berti’s knives as much as the unparalleled quality of their blades. View the kitchen knives collection here http://www.thatsarte.com/
Berti's knives are made of high carbon stainless steel, enriched with molybdenum and vanadium. The small grain size of this particular material enhances the strength of the blades and makes them stay sharp for a long time.
Both the stamped and the forged blades go through three hand processes that model the geometry of their edges to deliver a premium cutting performance.
Berti’s small workshop is located on the verdant outskirts of Scarperia, a charming little Tuscan village that is very well known for its tradition in cutlery making. Here, a handful of very skilled craftsmen produces an impressive choice of cutting tools in very limited quantities. Even though each knife has been designed and created for a specific task, they all share a number of common elements: premium quality materials, valuable know how and unparalleled craftsmanship.
“We have decided to include most of Berti’s collections to thatsArte.com online catalog: kitchen knives, steak knives, table knives, dessert knives, cheese knives and other specialty knives,” declares Tiziana Manzetti.

“After the launch of fine Italian table linens in 2013, the addition of Berti’s knives is an important step in the strategy to become a leading website for all things handmade in Italy.”
