    Bought one for a present for a very keen cook and sushi-enthusiast, the knife was very well received and has performed excellently particularly on sharpness, only problem is that no one else in the house is allowed to use it!

    I got this as a present for my partner who loves to cook, it’s an excellent knife, very sharp and does the job very well. Great customer service from the company throughout the purchasing process. Would recommend these knives to other keen cooks!

    Been meaning to write this for months!
    This is a truly special knife! In the last 10 plus years as a chef I have used many brands including some of the Japanese specialities and this beats them all!! Aside from its looks (It is very handsome) it keeps it’s edge and balances as well as it claims……….to live up to that is quite rare but it does!
    Cheered TOG……..will be adding the rest to my knife roll soon!

    Is this the best knife in the world? I think so! I’ve spent a lot of money on knives in the past but none of them compare to my Tog gyuto! I can not recommend this knife enough – it really is beautiful in every way! It’s scary sharp, extremely well balanced, fantastic ergonomics and stunning to look at! I did a lot of research before buying and I can’t recall seeing anything less then 5stars – Tog really is that good! Thank you Rob keep up the great work!

    I’m a chef and have been cooking full time for over 12 years. I have used a series of knives from brands including Global, Mac, Robert Welch, Shun, IO Shen, Henkels and Wusthoff, and without a doubt this knife is by far the best knife that I have purchased. The craftsmanship is first class, the blade is beautifully made and the handle sits perfectly. The knife isn’t heavy like some of the German knifes but still has more feel and weight than comparable global and Mac knifes.
    I would wholeheartedly recommend purchasing a TOG knife. You will not be disappointed.

    Its exactly the kind of knife I was shopping for. Its everything I hoped it would be and more. It not heavy and not to light weight. Its just ..I have no words to express the beauty of this knife. Its an experience.
