Care Instructions

The distinctive feature of the JANUS series is the black DLC coating on the blade. Diamond like Carbon refers to a pure carbon layer that is created in a very complex process. Carbon atoms are shot onto the blade surface and form a hard, black layer of pure carbon that is chemically inert. This makes the blades of the Janus series not only visually special, but also technically. They have a higher surface hardness and are completely resistant to acids, salts and other chemical influences.

Abrasives such as silicon carbide are often used in household cleaning sponges. These are capable of damaging the DLC coating. Therefore, generally do not use cleaning agents that contain abrasives. A damaged coating no longer protects against corrosion.
