Nesmuk knives are fascinating in every respect, simply because of their appearance. Once held in the hands, the fascination increases. And those who have the pleasure of working with the knives can no longer tear themselves away. The damask knives of the Exklusiv series are the supreme discipline of forging and reflect the values of Nesmuk: uncompromising quality, attention to detail and functionality. True masterpieces.
120 layers of steel form the elegant pattern of the wild damask and underline the elegant lines of the slicer. The 6.2 long, faceted blade with flat grinding is ideal for filleting due to its slim silhouette and slightly flexible blade. Classic wild damask symbolizes the origin of this craftsmanship: the composition of different types of steel, specifically selected to combine their functional advantages to create a blade that is far superior to conventional mono steel blades. Carbon content: 0.9%.
Stainless steels cannot be used for the fire welding of damask, as they do not have the quality and necessary properties of traditional carbon steels. Therefore genuine Damascus knives are susceptible to rust and require a certain amount of care. Together with the renowned Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology, Nesmuk has succeeded in applying a permanent coating to the damask surface, called Nesmuk Protective Coating (NPC). The silicon layer, which is only a few micrometers thick, preserves the precious blades for decades to come. All damask blades of the Exklusiv series are protected by the Protective Coating.
