Classic wild Damascus symbolizes the origin of this craftsmanship: the composition of different types of steel, specifically selected to combine their functional advantages to create a blade far superior to conventional mono-steel blades. Carbon content: 1.0%.

Maximum sharpness
and tool life

The starting steels used in our Damascus steel for the C90 and C100 series are high-performance tool steels. A high carbon content and tungsten, among other things, result in material properties that are exceptional. The result is the extreme sharpness and outstanding service life of Nesmuk chef's knives.

Origin of a
craft tradition

From fire welding and forging, hardening, tempering and grinding the hollow grind to assembling the handle. The production of a Nesmuk EXKLUSIV knife takes almost four dozen steps. The result is exceptional sharpness.

Corrosion resistant thanks to
Nesmuk Protective Coating

Thanks to the glass-like NPC coating (Nesmuk Protective Coating) developed together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology, the Nesmuk EXKLUSIV blades are protected against corrosion.

The cutting bevel of the blade is not coated. Therefore, you should always clean your Nesmuk EXKLUSIV knife after use. Clean the blade with detergent and under running water, dry well afterwards.

Hollow grinding on both sides for
optimized cutting ability

The 180 mm long, faceted blade with a hollow grind on both sides ensures reduced sticking to the material being cut and makes the knife an all-rounder in any kitchen. From the back of the blade with up to 3 mm of solid Damascus steel, the blade tapers from the center burr to a thousandth of a millimeter at the cutting edge: The double-sided hollow grind below the facet is created in 100% handcrafted in the Nesmuk forge.

Aesthetic and ergonomic

Ergonomic and solid handles for fatigue-free work: The design of the Nesmuk handle is as aesthetic as it is practical. For the wooden handles, Nesmuk uses only the best, often hand-picked pieces of exquisite quality. With wood as a naturally grown material, each handle is unique due to its individual grain, color shades and inclusions.

Good cooks have respect for

Factory farming. Mass cultivation. Mass production. - Quantity instead of quality. We live in an "abundance and throwaway society" that has forgotten how to properly value what feeds us. This starts with production, continues with processing and ends with consumption.

Good cooks have respect for food. They have the necessary respect and work with the utmost care and dedication. Respect is also reflected in the high craftsmanship, quality and sharpness of Nesmuk knives. Numerous top chefs around the world support Nesmuk's attitude as ambassadors: giving food the respect it deserves.

Care instructions

Hand-forged damask knives usually require extensive care to prevent them from rusting. All Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE knives are finished with the exclusive NPC coating (Nesmuk Protective Coating). NPC is a silicon coating only a few micrometers thick, which is applied using microwave-generated plasmas and permanently preserves the blade. The seeming end of the knife is not coated and can therefore tarnish and, if not cared for, rust. Therefore, do not leave your Nesmuk EXKLUSIV in liquids for too long. Rinse and dry your knife after use.
We recommend regularly sharpening the edge with a suitable, fine sharpener such as the Nesmuk strop. This maintains the sharpness and protects against tarnishing or rusting of the edge. We recommend maintaining the blade from time to time with an acid-free oil, such as our camellia oil.
