Nesmuk Janus
Nesmuk Janus



The name Nesmuk embodies the perfect interplay of tradition and personal experience, skilled precision craftsmanship and uncompromising functionality.
The basic form of the Nesmuk knife follows a type of knife that has existed for 3,500 years. Inspired by the aesthetic appeal, efficient functionality and logical shape of this original knife” Nesmuk has re-interpreted and perfected it.
The high-performance steel selected for the Nesmuk Nesmuk JANUS knives has an extraordinarily high niobium content. The Nesmuk JANUS also has a black DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating.
