What chefs say


Since launching TOG Knives at the end of 2013, it's been amazing to gain support from some incredibly talented chefs. We'd like to say a massive thank you to all the chefs who have generously contributed to this page.

Dominic Chapman, Josh Eggleton and Jude Kereama talk about why they love their TOG knives

I have been using this knife [TOG Gyuto] at home for the last six months and have to say, it's been brilliant.

I love Bert's passion for knives - he is a true knife master. You can feel the difference in every slice with TOG, they are built to last.

Since the first time I used it [TOG Santoku], I have never looked back. The blade sharpens easily, the handle is perfectly balanced and really comfortable for prolonged use.
