Diamond-Like Carbon - the
protective shield for the blade
The outstanding cutting properties of the JANUS and SOUL collections cannot be achieved with conventional stainless steel grades. Nesmuk therefore developed a very special type of steel processing that ensures unrivaled sharpness and durability at the same time. Unusually thin-ground blades, precision craftsmanship: this is how Nesmuk creates some of the lightest and sharpest knives in the world.
The little all-rounder
in the kitchen
The chef's knife with a 140 mm long and 3 mm thick blade, hollow ground on one side, is the classic all-rounder and indispensable and versatile as a "basic knife" in every kitchen. In addition, the blade is approx. 30 g lighter - for perhaps the lightest chef's knife in the world.
The cutting bevel has the classic V-grinding. This means that it can be used by both right-handed and left-handed users without any problems.
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.
Blade: 140 mm, niobium steel, 60 HRC, hollow grind on one side, V-grind on cutting bevel, DLC coating
Ferrule: stainless steel matt brushed
Included: High-quality matt black box, certificate of authenticitykat
The distinctive feature of the JANUS series is the black DLC coating on the blade. Diamond like Carbon refers to a pure carbon layer that is created in a very complex process. Carbon atoms are shot onto the blade surface and form a hard, black layer of pure carbon that is chemically inert. This makes the blades of the Janus series not only visually special, but also technically. They have a higher surface hardness and are completely resistant to acids, salts and other chemical influences.
Abrasives such as silicon carbide are often used in household cleaning sponges. These are capable of damaging the DLC coating. Therefore, generally do not use cleaning agents that contain abrasives. A damaged coating no longer protects against corrosion:
