How is the Tōk made?

We have a passion for small-scale manufacture that we hope is unmistakable the first time you hold something we’ve made. We combine all the forces of science and technology to produce what may be the finest joint case on the planet. Each Tōk is purpose-built with fully machined anodized aluminum. Anodizing applies the colour coating and hardens the outer skin of the aluminium so it’s a lot more resistant to marks and abrasions. It also ensures the raw aluminium won’t blacken your hands. Lastly, unlike paints and other coatings, anodizing does not reduce the recyclability of aluminium. It minimizes materials such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or heavy metals, making your Tōk fully recyclable at the end of its life.
