Nesmuk Exklusiv C150 Chef's Knife | Karelian Birch Burl

By Nesmuk


THE PINNACLE OF SMITHING: Hardly any other knife expresses origin and consistency of artisanal skill like the hand-crafted knifes from Nesmuk. From the firewelding, forging, hardening and grinding of the hollow grind to the assembly of the grip: More than four dozen steps are necessary for the manufacturing of one Nesmuk EXKLUSIV C150 chef’s knife – the masterpiece of the manufacture. Forged from 401 layers, the 180mm long, faceted blade with hollow grind on both sides reduces adhesion of cut material and makes the knife the all-rounder in every kitchen. Carbon content: 1,5%. The exclusive coating technology Nesmuk Protective Coating reduces the otherwise common maintenance effort and preserves the valuable blade for decades.

CRAFTSMANSHIP IN COMPLETION: High concentration, for hours or even days, is necessary for working out the cutting layer of carbon steel, visible in black below the wild damascus steel – a crafting feat, only mastered by few smiths around the world.

PERFECTION FROM THE HAND OF A MASTER: The fine cutting layer is also visible on the 3mm strong back of the blade. Only a knife that is found to be of flawless perfection receives our archaic bat symbol as a sign of quality and authenticity.
