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.

Sustained sharpness thanks to sepcial blade shape - eben on porcelain

The construction of the exclusive folders requires absolute precision and is carried out at Nesmuk exclusively by trained goldsmiths who have the necessary sensitivity for handling the precious materials. Constructed as a classic slipjoint, the 89 mm long knife blade is positioned and held in place by a back spring. This acts on the blade with a force of 6 Newtons. For safety, the blade stops at 90 degrees when opening and closing. The straight blade geometry allows the user to guide the knife over the plate without damaging the cutting edge. Thus, only the tip of the blade is in contact with the substrate and it is the only place that becomes blunt, but this does not affect the cutting ability.

Aesthetic and ergonomic

Ergonomic and solid handles for fatigue-free work: The design 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. With wood as a naturally grown material, each handle is unique due to its individual grain, color shades and inclusions.

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.
