Janus Chinese Chef Knife 180 | 8"

As an all-rounder, it can handle around 70 percent of all cutting tasks quickly and with precision. The specially shaped, wide blade with its characteristic curvature on the top and the cutting edge curved towards the tip make the cradle cut as much a pleasure as chopping and transporting the material to be cut. Tradition and innovation meet in the Chinese Chef's Knife from Nesmuk: developed in collaboration with top Chinese restaurateurs, it is the reinterpretation of a 3500-year-old basic shape.

Black DLC (Diamond-Like-Carbon) coatings were developed for the highest demands and are used, for example, in aerospace and Formula 1 engines. The amorphous carbon layer, which is only a few micrometers thick, is insensitive to acids, bases, extreme temperatures and similar aggressive influences. Nesmuk uses an extremely hard, deep black coating variant that is characterized by low friction coefficients and enormous scratch resistance.

The uncoated and polished cutting bevel guarantees the finest possible cut: the unique Nesmuk steel contains the rare element niobium - this ensures the very fine steel structure despite rust inertia. At the same time, greater mechanical strength is reached and the blade becomes stronger and tougher. The result is extreme sharpness and increased service life and cutting durability.
