Kitchen knives & cutting
Nesmuk JANUS: stylish blade with diamond-like coating
When opening the luxurious box containing a kitchen knife from the JANUS collection from Nesmuk the knife will immediately stand out.
The remarkable, black satin glow of the dlc (diamond-like coating) is stunning and looks even better on its velvet bed. This coating is, of course, stunning, but also very functional. It is merely 3 micron thick (to compare: a human hair is 10 to 50 times thicker) but so extremely hard that the blade is protected from scratches and acidic or any other harmful substances.
The knife has a hollow grind on one side of the blade. Because of this hollow grind the knife is so sharp. Each knife should be sharpened when used on a regular basis. A knife with a hollow grind is easier to sharpen. Using a stropping paddle treated with diamond paste is often enough. However, these knives do need to be sharpened by someone who knows what they are doing. If only to make sure they won’t be damaged. Not sure if you should sharpen the knife yourself? Nesmuk will do it for you! For free, for over 30 years! Check out the Nesmuk site for the procedure.
Stainless steel crop
The transition between the dark blade and the handle is finished with a stainless steel crop. A stunning design element which is a characteristic for all Nesmuk kitchen knives. The handle gracefully follows the line of the blade. When using these knives on a daily basis the ergonomic handle feels amazing, even when you use them for a longer period of time.
Enjoying Nesmuk for life
Like any other great kitchen knife a Nesmuk should not be cleaned in a dishwasher. Wash it by hand after use and dry it properly. Only use it in combination with a wooden cutting board. Treat this knife right and you will enjoy it for the rest of your life. And so will your (grand)children!
