Striving for perfection. With the Nesmuk Janus steak and table knife, this goal has almost been achieved. The blade consists of a special knife steel refined with nitrogen. This unique alloy makes the steel extremely resistant to corrosion. At the same time, the steel can be hardened considerably more without becoming brittle. This optimized steel structure allows the classic Nesmuk sharpness paired with an unusually high hardness and an enormous service life. The wedge ground blade has a hardness of approx. 60 HRC.
The Janus steak & table knives are additionally refined with the Diamond-Like-Carbon coating (DLC). This coating, only a few micrometers thick but extremely hard (2,300 Vickers), makes the blades insensitive to acids and similar aggressive influences.Great side effects of this scratch resistant coating: Due to the low coefficients of friction, the blades glide even more easily through the material to be cut and appear sharper. The deep black colour of the DLC coating gives the blades a breathtaking appearance. And Nesmuk has not only optimised the steel: The linear geometry demands a clean cut without sawing and tearing. Only the tip is put on and often a single pull is sufficient to cut smoothly. This functionality can only be guaranteed with an extremely sharp blade.
Blade and tang are made of one piece of steel, which gives the knife a wonderful balance. Each knife is completely sharpened individually and lies comfortably and securely in the hand without disturbing edges and gaps. The handles on both sides are decorated with stainless steel bezels covered with black precious resin. On one side there is the engraved Nesmuk bat, which is accentuated by white fine lacquer.
The Nesmuk Janus steak and table knife is supplied as a set of 2 in a high-quality matt black box including certificate of authenticity.
