If you have chosen to invest in a TOG knife, it would be crazy not to keep it super sharp. Having said that, knife sharpening is quite a skill. Some people prefer to leave it to the professionals.

Sheffield Knife Sharpening (Postal Service)

We are delighted to be working with Scott Mclellan of Sheffield Knife Sharpening. Scott offers TOG’s full sharpening and repair service from his workshop in Sheffield. He has sharpened, repaired and restored well over 1000 knives using Japanese whetstones. This method achieves the absolute best results possible, removing only the minimum steel necessary in each case. Working by hand like this also avoids producing heat, which can affect the properties of the steel. Scott finishes with a 6000 grit fine stone and then a leather strop, producing a ’better than new’ edge.

Knives For Chefs (London Drop-off)

For those in London who are able to drop knives off in person, we are also working with James Adams from Knives for Chefs. James provides a similar service, also sharpening by hand with whetstones. The knives can be collected or posted back and should take no more than a day to complete. Prices for both these services are the same.
