Favored by top chefs worldwide, Nesmuk knives are handcrafted from extraordinary materials and refined for the highest level of cutting performance. The Janus series is finished with an exceptionally hard, black diamond-like carbon coating, which glides effortlessly through foods of all textures. These steak knives features straightforward geometry that allows them to cut easily without sawing or ripping tender cuts of meat.

- Blade has a high-quality diamond-like carbon coating that offers extraordinary cutting performance and toughness.
- Handle is European bog oak (fossilized oak trunk up to 5,000 years old) with a brushed stainless-steel collar.
- Ergonomically designed handle.

- Use & Care
- Store the knife separately in a knife block, in the box or in a sheath.
- Do not let the blade come into contact with other knives or metal objects.
- Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
- Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
- It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.
- Hand-wash with warm water. Never put in the dishwasher. Dry the knife thoroughly after washing.
- The best way to keep the wooden handle in good condition is to use the knife regularly and oil it occasionally. The grease on the palm of your hand and washing do not dry out the handle. Over the years, they give its surface a warm, silky sheen.
- The Nesmuk leather strop is the best tool for sharpening the knife.
- Never sharpen the knife with rotating grinders. This causes the blade's cutting zone to heat up briefly to temperatures of over 1000°F, which makes it soft and destroys the steel's fine microstructure.
