NOTE – Our Sujihiki knives are now made from a new 17 layer steel which has improved strength and scratch resistance. We have made a first batch of 106 of these (numbered) and your order will include one.
The price for the set represents a saving of £100 compared to purchasing the four individually.
Please note: The Gyuto Knife is available on backorder & will be delivered separately – estimated delivery mid-March.
Samurai swords have been made in Seki for 800 years. Now the best kitchen knives in the world are produced there. Eight craftsmen are needed to make a Samurai sword, each a specialist in one part of the process. That is how to achieve the absolute best quality. At TOG we follow the same philosophy. Our blades are passed between eight tiny, specialised companies in Seki. Each knife is unique. We number each blade in celebration of these differences.
We have worked with our partners in Seki to create TOG’s unique 21 and 17 layer steels. These contain alternating layers of antimicrobial copper which give TOG knives their distinctive stripes. Like a Samurai sword, these steels have a hard central core steel for sharpness, surrounded by softer steel layers for strength.
The handle of a knife is every bit as important than the blade. Ask a chef. We believe our handles are as comfortable as any in the world. We designed a unique ‘side scoop’ for added control. They are made from Kebony maple wood as it is natural, sustainable, water resistant and beautiful. Finally, to celebrate old and new coming together – a key aspect of Japanese culture – we have laser etched a 600 year old pattern on to each handle as a grip.
I love TOG knives - they are truly beautiful, perfectly weighted and a joy to use.Dominic ChapmanChef/Patron, The Beehive, White Waltham, Berkshire (Michelin Star and 2015 Great British Menu regional finalist)
