Diamond-Like Carbon - the
protective shield for the blade

Das unverwechselbare Kennzeichen der Kollektion JANUS ist die schwarze Klinge – Symbol höchster Qualität und Funktionalität dank der Veredelung mit der hochwertigen DLC-Technologie (Diamond-Like-Carbon). Als besondere Beschichtung für höchste Beanspruchung optimiert sie die funktionalen Eigenschaften der Klinge. Die nur wenige Mikrometer starke Kohlenstoff-Schicht ist unempfindlich gegenüber Säuren, Basen und extremen Temperaturen und zeichnet sich durch niedrige Reibwerte und enorme Kratzfestigkeit aus. Die Serie Janus wird so zum handschmeichelnden Werk-Zeug für Anspruchsvolle.


Sharp and

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 all-rounder in
the kitchen

The chef's knife with a 180 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 thus lighter by another approx. 30 g - 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.

Care instructions


Das markante Kennzeichen der Serie JANUS ist die schwarze DLC Beschichtung auf der Klinge. Diamond like Carbon bezeichnet eine reine Kohlenstoffschicht, die in einem sehr aufwendigen Verfahren erzeugt wird. Es werden Kohlenstoffatome auf die Klingenoberfläche geschossen und bilden eine harte, schwarze Schicht aus reinem Kohlenstoff, die chemisch inert ist. Damit sind die Klingen der Serie Janus nicht nur optisch etwas Besonderes, sondern auch technisch. Sie weisen eine höhere Oberflächenhärte auf und sind gegen Säuren, Salze u.a. chemische Einflüsse volkommen resistent.

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:
