We took our time choosing a great all-purpose chef's knife for QUITOKEETO. If you prefer stainless-steel over (higher maintenance) carbon steel, this knife is a great option. It has a classic silhouette with an 8-inch stainless-steel, high carbon blade weighty enough for serious work, yet finely balanced and sturdy. The smooth white Lucite handle is comfortable to hold and will age beautifully with use. We like its size—large enough, but not overkill.
David Berti began crafting knives in 1895, in the Tuscan countryside. Today, the Berti tradition still requires that each knife is the complete work of a sole craftsman. The hands that begin the work finish it. This means each knife crafted is unique, and contains the thought, the hand, and the expertise of an individual shaper. Every knife from Berti bears the initials of the craftsman who made it.
These knives have the strength of carbon steel, plus the durability, flexibility, and corrosion resistance of stainless steel. The quality of the steel and the care with which Berti knives are made ensure that, with proper maintenance, this knife will follow you through your culinary life.
