Diamond-Like Carbon – the protective shield for the blade
The unmistakable hallmark of the JANUS collection is the black blade – symbol of the highest quality and functionality thanks to the finishing with the high-quality DLC technology (Diamond-Like-Carbon). As a special coating for the highest stress, it optimizes the functional properties of the blade. The carbon coating, which is only a few micrometers thick, is insensitive to acids, bases and extreme temperatures and is characterized by low friction values and enormous scratch resistance. This makes the Janus series a hand-flattering piece of work for the discerning.
Sharp and resistant
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 that is hollow ground on one side is the classic all-rounder and, as a “basic knife” in every kitchen, is indispensable and versatile. In addition, the blade is about 30 g lighter – for what is 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.
Handle Material – Grenadilla
Grenadilla is a hardwood widely used in Africa. The dark brown, almost black heartwood is interspersed with fine, often dark purple to black stripes, which give the wood its characteristic appearance. The enormous hardness and the very fine wood structure give grenadilla its very smooth surface.
