Our commitment to quality and craftsmanship means that our knives are handmade using the best steel and materials. Going from raw materials to a finished knife takes serious dedication, attention, and skills from the entire TC crew. Our knives are made to last and bring you and following generations a lifetime of enjoyment.
It depends on how often it’s used. A sharp knife is always safer than a dull knife, not to mention easier and more enjoyable to cut with, so we highly recommend sharpening your knife when it starts feeling dull. Cutting with a dull blade can lead to slipping off the product or using additional force that may cause accidents and injury.
Our knives have excellent edge retention and may not require sharpening as frequently as other knives. As a guideline, home cooks usually need sharpening every 6–12 months.
When you’re ready to have your knives sharpened, we do our best to make the mail-in process as easy and fast as possible. Learn more about mail-in sharpening.
