The supreme discipline of the blacksmith's art
Exclusive coating technology
Damascus steel is tough but also has its weaknesses. Environmental influences. Food or moisture can corrode the blade. At Nesmuk we don’t want to accept this and have therefore invested years of development in order to achieve a protection system for the steel. This is how the NPC came into being.
NPC stands for Nesmuk Protective Coating – an innovative and globally unique process that protects Damascus steel against corrosion. You can think of it as a second skin that is applied to the carbon steel as a silicon layer using plasma technology with a thickness of just a few micrometers. Thus the Damascus blade is preserved for life and protects against rust.
Craftsmanship in perfection
It takes hours or even days of high concentration to masterly forge Damascus steel and produce an outstanding blade. At the very end, the well-known pattern of Damascus steel appears – a craftsmanship that only a few master blacksmiths in the world have mastered to perfection.
Perfection from a master hand
The result of a long-term development of the solid Nesmuk handle is the unique ergonomics that guarantee fatigue-free cutting. Thus the handle has both aesthetics and practicality. When selecting woods, Nesmuk pays particular attention to hand-picked woods of exquisite quality and certified origin.
When the handles are made from wood that has grown naturally, each knife receives its unique look such as pattern, grain, color shades and bullet holes and is therefore each unique. Furthermore, the selection of handles is being expanded with Juma and Micarta, two high-tech plastics.
