The Berti Pesto Knife is like the chef’s knife with a broad blade but with a rounded tip rather than a pointed one. Also called the mincing knife, or mezzaluna (Italian for “half moon”), the highly curved blade allows greater rocking of the knife for extremely fine mincing. Named for the mincing of basil necessary for making pesto, this knife is ideal for any fine mincing of garlic and all varieties of herbs.

Berti Knife Options:
  • Anchor Tang - blade anchored in handle. Anchor tang available in Genuine Oxhorn or Black Lucite.
  • Full Tang - handle in two halves anchored to blade. Available in Black, White or Red Lucite
  • Magnetized Wooden Block - Custom-sized, wood block available to store each knife. Magnet allows blocks to adhere together (in Italian: "insieme").
