Diamond-Like Carbon - the
protective shield for the blade

The unmistakable hallmark of the JANUS collection is the black blade - symbol of the highest quality and functionality thanks to the finishing with the high-quality DLC technology (Diamond-Like-Carbon). As a special coating for the highest stress, it optimizes the functional properties of the blade. The carbon coating, which is only a few micrometers thick, is insensitive to acids, bases and extreme temperatures and is characterized by low friction values and enormous scratch resistance. This makes the Janus series a hand-flattering piece of work for the discerning.

Sharp & resistant

The outstanding cutting properties of the JANUS and SOUL collections cannot be achieved with conventional stainless steel grades. Nesmuk therefore developed a very special type of steel processing that ensures unrivaled sharpness and durability at the same time. Unusually thin-ground blades, precision craftsmanship: this is how Nesmuk creates some of the lightest and sharpest knives in the world.


Janus Chef´s Knife 180 - Experience the difference

With the JANUS Chef's Knife 180, we present you the high-quality chef's knife that stands out for its incomparable quality and functionality. With a blade length of 7 inches and a thickness of 0.12 inches, this exclusive chef's knife proves to be a true all-rounder. The unique single-sided hollow grind not only saves about an ounce of weight, but also reduces the amount of force needed to cut and maintains the knife's low wedge action for decades. This makes it one of the lightest and most durable chef's knives on the market. The cutting bevel, sharpened on both sides at a 12.5° angle, is suitable for both right- and left-handed users and for the finest cuts. Whether you're finely dicing vegetables, precisely slicing meat or meticulously chopping herbs, this knife makes every task a pleasure. Upgrade your culinary journey with this essential tool in any kitchen.

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.
