    "I first met Tony, Becks and Harriet at Edinburgh’s Taste festival several years ago. Everyone in the cheffy world was BUZZING about these new knives that were out. I met the family and was very taken by their knowledge and sincerity.

    I used the knives on stage that day on the demo and have never looked back. I recently bought all my chefs, knives from Tony on our first year’s anniversary of opening.

    Even the hardy pirates in my kitchen were humbled by such high quality of workmanship. To sum it up for me, a quality of workmanship and honourable family business that is so hard to come by today."

    "I love Kin knives. Mine only need sharpening about twice a year and thanks to the brilliant craftsmanship stay razor, razor sharp. They are comfortable to use, beautiful to look at and make cooking a joy. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough"

    "My Tanaka knife makes every morning more enjoyable, I can't wait to get in and use it! Since buying it, I have become a bit of a knife geek and Kin Knives are simply more trustworthy than any other knife company out there!

    My Suminagashi is used every minute of the day and is still as sharp as the day I bought it!!"

    "Having spent years flitting from brand to brand and style to style it is so satisfying to finally come across a knife that I am completely happy with. The balance, the weight, the feel of it in my hand could not be better, and I know now I don’t have to keep looking for The Knife anymore as I have found it with Kin. A number of chefs had recommended Kin knives to me but it wasn’t till I actually tried one out that I knew it was definitely the right choice."

    "When carving my turkeys at food shows up and down the country I always use Kin knives as they are quite simply the best. They keep their edge far longer than other knives, and a quick "polish" on the stone every now and again keeps them absolutely perfect.

    My Guinness world record for turkey carving was achieved using a kin knife, I would not have used any other."
