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.

Fine grinding for
precise cutting

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.


SOUL Chinese Chef's Knife: Culinary Artistry Meets Versatile Precision.

Presenting the SOUL Chinese Chef's Knife – the embodiment of precision and multifunctionality. Designed as a culinary powerhouse, this distinguished chef's knife adeptly tackles roughly 70% of all kitchen cutting endeavors, ensuring swiftness and precision. The blade, distinct in its broad design, boasts a graceful curvature at the top and a keen edge arching towards its tip, making techniques like cradle cutting as pleasurable as efficient chopping.


The versatility of the SOUL Chinese Chef's Knife extends beyond just cutting. Its expansive blade also acts as a handy conduit, enabling chefs to smoothly transfer freshly chopped ingredients straight to their cooking vessels. From meticulously mincing veggies to swiftly moving them into a sizzling wok, this premium chef's knife makes every culinary chore feel like an orchestrated ballet. Discover the magic of finesse in your culinary journey with this essential masterpiece.

Care Instructions

Avoid sliding the blade scabbard sideways over the base. Do not jam the blade in the cutting surface or in hard material to be cut. Avoid hard contacts on bones or similar as well as unnecessary pressure when cutting. These types of use will cause blades to dull more quickly.
The patented blade steel with the rare element niobium makes Nesmuk knives particularly sharp and gives them greater resistance and therefore a longer service life. Due to its special composition, however, this steel is not completely corrosion resistant and tends to tarnish. This is completely harmless to health and can be partially removed by polishing. We recommend not to leave your SOUL in acidic or salty liquids and to rinse and dry it after use.
The Nesmuk Steak and Table Knife SOUL and the Nesmuk Folder SOUL are suitable for use on harder surfaces due to their special purpose as cutlery knives. Due to the adapted design, only the tip of the knife makes contact when used correctly, and the cutting edge therefore remains sharp for a very long time. Here, too, hard contacts of the cutting edge should be avoided.
