The little Allrounder

The Nesmuk JANUS chef's knife with a blade length of 140 mm is the small universal knife from our manufactory and is ideally suited for cutting or dicing vegetables. The blade is a little bit higher and gives a plus of security. The filigree knife handle with its functional ergonomics ensures perfect control. This makes it the perfect knife for all those who normally like to use small peeling knives. The blade is made of the patented niobium steel and therefore has an improved cutting ability and a very long service life. The DLC coating additionally protects the steel from acids and simplifies the care of the knife. The functional carbon coating has a surface hardness three times higher than that of steel. The blade has the one-sided hollow grinding typical of Nesmuk, which reduces weight and cutting ability.

High tech coating for highest cutting comfort

The DLC coating method was invented for highest standards and is used in medicine, spaceflight and racecar motors. The amorphous carbon coat, a few micrometer thin, is immune to acids, bases, extreme temperatures and similarly aggressive effects. Nesmuk uses an extremely hard, deep black coating variant distinguished by low friction and high scratch resistance.

Unique steel for extreme sharpness

The uncoated and polished edge guarantees the finest possible cut: The unique Nesmuk steel contains the element niobium – this makes it possible to have an extremely fine steel mix and high rust resistance at the same time. It also increases the mechanical density, making the blade tougher and stronger. The result is an extreme sharpness as well as better blade lifetime and edge holding ability.

Ergonomic and solid handles for fatigue-free working: The shape 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 and certified origin. With wood as a naturally grown material, each handle is unique due to its individual grain, shades of colour and bullet holes. Nesmuk also offers two high-tech plastics: Juma and Micarta.

Each Nesmuk product is manufactured with the utmost care and precision and is tested several times during the elaborate manufacturing process before it leaves the factory. The elaborate craftsmanship of the finest materials does not serve an end in itself, but is the necessary consequence of the uncompromising demand for quality, attention to detail and functionality. We wish you lots of pleasure with your new Nesmuk knife - if you observe the following instructions for proper handling, this pleasure can last for decades. By the way, all care instructions are printed again with every Nesmuk knife and wooden board.

Handling

With their blade geometry and extreme sharpness, Nesmuk knives are designed for so-called pressure cutting; the often common sawing movements are not required. We like to recommend "silent cutting", the thin blades are not suitable for hammering, chopping and knocking. This also protects the cutting edge and increases the service life of the knife. Avoid contact of the cutting edge with bones and frozen food.

Cutting Boards

Hard surfaces such as glass, granite or marble are very unsuitable and can quickly make a knife dull. Optimal cutting underlays are made of wood, in particular the forehead wood of southern German oak: This protects the finely ground blades, as you always cut into a bundle of fibres from above instead of cutting wood fibres. Thanks to the high content of natural tannic acid, oak wood is naturally antibacterial and meets high hygienic requirements.

cleaning

Good knives never belong in the dishwasher; chemicals and salts attack the steel and cause chemical blunting. Nesmuk knives are best cleaned by hand with warm water; if necessary, detergents and a soft cloth can also be used. The knife should not be left in the water, especially with wooden handles, and should be dried immediately after cleaning.

Storage

Nesmuk knives should be stored in such a way that the blades cannot strike each other or come into contact with other hard objects. It is recommended to store the blades on a magnetic male connector or on a knife block. For storage in the kitchen drawer, the original box or a suitable leather sheath is recommended, whereby the knife should always be well dried.

Pflege Nesmuk SOUL

The blades are made of stainless niobium steel. In case of prolonged exposure to acidic food, a shadow may form on the blade. This is harmless to health and can be removed with a plaster stone, for example. To avoid this, clean and dry your SOUL knife immediately after use.

Pflege Nesmuk JANUS

The blades are made of stainless niobium steel. The black DLC (Diamond-like carbon) coating is an extremely hard amorphous carbon layer, only a few micrometers thick, which protects the blade from tarnishing. No special care is required. The cutting edge of all Nesmuk knives is of course always uncoated, so that it is recommended that the Nesmuk strops are kept clean.

Care of Nesmuk EXKLUSIV

Hand-forged damask knives usually require extensive care in order not to rust. All Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE knives are finished with the exclusive NPC coating (Nesmuk Protective Coating). NPC is a silicon layer only a few micrometers thick, which is applied using microwave-generated plasmas and permanently preserves the blade. No special care is required. The cutting edge of all Nesmuk knives is of course always uncoated, so that it is recommended that the Nesmuk strops are kept clean.

Handles

The wooden handles are best maintained through regular use. The handle cannot dry out as a result of hand grease and washing and over the years it has a warm silky shiny surface. Hardwoods with a high oil content do not require any special care. In the case of woods without a high fat content, an occasional treatment with e.g. camellia or tung oil is advantageous. Handles made of the plastics Juma, Micarta and piano lacquer do not require any special care. Handles made of silver and precious stones can be cleaned and polished occasionally if necessary. The clamps of all kitchen knives are made of stainless steel and require no special care.

Sharpening

The steels exclusively processed by Nesmuk guarantee extreme and long-lasting sharpness. To maintain and maintain this sharpness, we recommend the use of the Nesmuk stroking belt - it is very easy to use and lasts a maximum of two minutes. This ensures that the blade is kept sharp and permanently sharp when used regularly. As a special service, we offer registered Nesmuk customers the opportunity to have their knife sharpened free of charge - all information on using this service can be found here.

Boards

In order to preserve the beauty and utility of your Nesmuk board for as long as possible, you should never clean it in the dishwasher but only by hand. The board should not be left in the water. After cleaning, the board should be dried well and stored in an airy and dry place. Wood is a natural, living material. Contact with water may cause the Nesmuk board to warp slightly. This should decrease after complete drying. However, slight warping does not reduce the quality. The tannic acid in oak wood can cause discolouration in the wood after prolonged contact with non-rust free metals. This is completely harmless from a food hygiene point of view. Nesmuk Care Wax Oil is recommended for the care of all Nesmuk boards. Made from pure vegetable oils, valuable natural resins and finest beeswax, it reduces the absorbency and solidifies the wood surface. Rough areas can be smoothed before oiling with the enclosed abrasive fleece or the rough side of a rinsing sponge.
