Descriptions & details
Named after the classic, succulent Tuscan steak, aka fiorentina, the Chianino kitchen knives are reliable and long-lasting cutting tools.
Their blades are cut from high-quality stainless steel and treated to achieve the perfect mix of elasticity and durability. The unsharpened part of the blade runs all the way to the end of the butt; this feature, known as full-tang, is vital to the balance, weight, stability, and strength of the knife.
The Chianino collection is handcrafted in Scarperia by Consigli, knife makers since the 1950s.
Dimensions (inches): 13.4 (blade 8.7)
Dimensions (cm): 34 (blade 22)
Bread knife use and care: it is designed to slice perfectly through the softest brioche, the crunchiest country loaf, and a homemade apple pie. However, a bread knife is just as great to slice ripe tomatoes.
The Chianino collection is dishwasher safe. However, handwashing and drying all kitchen knives immediately after use helps preserve their appearance over time.

Handmade in Scarperia (Tuscany), Italy
When the Consigli brothers founded their own knife-making company in the 1950s, they already had a long experience in this ancient craft and knew how to make a difference.
They experimented with innovative materials and created hard-working, robust, and durable working knives with designs inspired by regional traditions. Encouraged by their success, they went on to create new, high-end collections of kitchen and table knives that have been their best-selling product ever since.
Made of high-quality materials, both natural and synthetic, Consigli knives are entirely handcrafted using traditional production methods. The company motto is "nothing but the best", and their products are true to it.
The company is located in Scarperia, a charming little village perched on a Tuscan hill north of Florence.
Scarperia has been home to the knife-making industry for more than 600 years. The origin of the ancient, illustrious tradition of iron-working and blade making is lost in the mists of time. Still, the magic of the simple, essential gestures that forge perfect blades and change them into legendary knives is intact, handed down from one generation to the next.
