Discover the world of Nesmuk chef's knives from Germany – how they were created, what makes them so special and why more and more ambitious amateur and professional chefs swear by the sharpness and the beauty of Nesmuk. +++For German speaking users - have a look at: Exklusive Messer und Damastmesser der Nesmuk GmbH & Co. KG+++.
Our unique knife ranges include the hand-crafted Nesmuk EXKLUSIV, DIAMOR®, JANUS and Nesmuk SOUL; the ranges include Chef’s knives and the new Nesmuk Folder / folding knives. One thing which they all have in common: the production of every German Nesmuk knife is according to the optimization principle. For every scope of application, guaranteeing optimum material quality and composition, perfect blade geometry and maximum precision. Every step has to be perfect in order to achieve the best quality of exclusive knives.
The hand-crafted Damascus knives from Nesmuk convey the unique craftsmanship know-how. The Exklusiv range is entirely handmade from the first to the last step - from drawing to forging, tempering, annealing and the wet grinding of the hollow-ground blade to the mounting of the handle. These result in luxury from Germany with forms which have never been seen before, and give an incredible cutting experience when cooking.
All of the them are unique in their each and own ways. The Nesmuk EXKLUSIV range represents the outstanding craftsmanship (Please refer to: Press News about Nesmuk); it combines the best characteristics of a Damascus knife: first and foremost, a premium-quality blade which is not stainless on purpose, this allows the steel (more information under: Glossary) to have up to 60 times finer cutting performance. These consist of either – in the full Damascus variety, 480 layers of Damascus steel, or the “Damascus with cutting edge” range 400 layers of wild Damascus and a cutting edge in finest carbon steel. Both of the them deliver extraordinary sharpness and long-lasting cutting edge retention, probably the best knives in Germany and the world.
Nesmuk SOUL is another one of the products of the German knife manufactory. It represents the original and at the same time still extraordinary. The production consists of half-manual and half-machinery. It is functional and aesthetic at the same time. The DIAMOR chef's knife on the contrary, has a coating which is comparable to barely one tenth of a human hair with a sensational hardness of 5500 Vickers which guarantee extreme long-term edge retention. Last but not least there is the JANUS range; the blade is made of high-performance steel. The diamond-like-carbon coating represents tradition and progress by a German brand.
We highly recommend the use of our knife holders when it comes to storing Nesmuk chef's knives . As well as using our oil for maintenance. You find these products in the navigation under the category “Accessories”. For the handling and care please see the tips for users under “Service”.
