TOG Knives mission is solve the problem of blunt knives. These are frustrating and unsafe to use and often consigned to the back of the drawer or thrown away. TOG aims to move society away from mass produced disposable plastic products towards high-performance tools that will last a lifetime if looked after properly. TOG Knives teach people to maintain their products and take a long term view whilst at the same time reducing the environmental impact of the products by using recycled, reclaimed and renewable materials in their designs.
NEW WALL-MOUNTED MAGNETIC KNIFE STORAGE
New for 2022, TOG’s new wall-mounted magnetic knife racks are made by hand in Yorkshire by the same craftsman who makes chopping boards. TOG Knives have made them using off-cuts from the wood from boards to minimise waste.
TOG’s range of innovative kitchen knives are forged in Seki, the Samurai sword capital of the world, using methods evolved from 800 years of swordmaking tradition. TOG blades are forged from layers of highest quality stainless steels and copper which gives them strength as well as their incredible edge retention. The antimicrobial copper alloy layers give the blades their unique stripes and make them the most hygienic on the market.
TOG chopping boards are made by hand in West Yorkshire, a handful at a time. They are constructed from solid American black walnut. The five stripes echoing the copper layers in the blades of knives are made from cherry. TOG Knives source timber from sustainably managed forests. The boards are available in four different sizes for different food prep tasks.
TOG Knives are on a mission to get everyone sharpening their own knives. It can be a tad tricky to learn, but it’s definitely worth persisting. Once you’ve got the hang of it, all your knives can be super sharp – forever. And it’s such a satisfying thing to do.
The range of TOG whetstones has been 7 years in the making. They’ve found the very best manufacturers in the world – from USA, Japan and Belgium. These will produce the very best results possible. More importantly, though, they make it EASIER to produce great results.
The TOG X Billy Tannery double sided magnetic knife block (26x30x22cms) safely stores and displays up to ten knives. It’s handmade in small batches out of American Black Walnut, stainless steel and goat leather which is kind on your blades. Made in collaboration with Billy Tannery we’re using goat hide left over from the UK food industry that would previously have gone to waste.
The Kyūkyoku is the ultimate knife set for the home enthusiast. Kyūkyoku means ‘Ultimate’ in Japanese. This set of four TOG knives comes with the almighty TOG x Billy Tannery knife block to store and display your knives. Also includes a honing rod to keep them super sharp.
