A more than 190 years History...
Berthier’s cutlery, was established in 1820 by Alphonse Berthier, himself a cutler’s son. Since then, the firm has always been run by the same family and is presently run by Didier Charbonnel, great grandson of the founder. Didier makes a point in respecting the family tradition together with a will of opening it up to innovation.
