  • Our story

TUO, in the Chinese language it means "to explore and adventure." By adhering to this adventurous spirit, TUO turned from a workshop of more than 20 people at the very first time into a pioneer in the knife industry in China, constantly creating a new standard for the kitchen knife industry now.

About the knife

  • What is your formula of steel?

TUO knives are created using a special alloy of high-carbon German stainless steel or Japanese steel. The edge is painstakingly sharpened to ensure you a razor-sharp blade.

  • What are the most important knives to start a set?

The most essential knife in any kitchen is the chef’s knife, and after that, it depends on your personal preferences when cooking.

  • How do I keep my knives sharp?

①Keep your knife clean while you're using it. While cutting, frequently rinse it off with hot water and wipe it clean to keep food from building up on the blade. This prevents the blade from dulling and working less efficiently.

②It is not recommended that the TUO knives be used for extreme cutting actions, particularly with bone, frozen foods, or hard cutting surfaces.

③We do recommend wood, bamboo, or plastic chopping board. It's best to stay away from hard surfaces such as marble or glass as they can cause the knife's edge to chip as well.

④If the handle have become rough, the usual culprit is almost always high-temperatures associated with a dish-washing machine, cleaning, soaking in water, or abrasive chemicals.
