  3. Nesmuk Exclusive Slicer 160mm

    The art of forging in perfection

    The long quest for the perfect knife

    It is way more than just a commodity for everyday use: The Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE bears the heritage of thousands of years and gives its user a wholly different individual power. Being the forefather of the knife, the biface is among the oldest tools in almost all human societies and is seen as the symbol for the rise of mankind in evolutionary terms. It is a truly archaic object that, refined into the knife, has served as an indispensable tool up to the present. Only the fascination of the primordial has vanished in the course of industrialisation and mass production.

    The knife manufacturer Nesmuk has set itself the task of reviving old values with traditional craftsmanship and, at the same time, to meet the highest demands regarding sharpness, blade geometry and aesthetics. As a result, the Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE is an unparalleled chef’s and kitchen knife of superlative style and quality. Like all Nesmuk knives, it is based on the basic form of a 3,500 year old knife type. Drawing on many years of studies and comparative analytical tests, highly skilled precision craftsmanship and the uncompromised aim to reach the optimum in sum, Nesmuk has fully perfected the knife. About four dozen individual steps are required for the production of the Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE in a process that involves passion and ideals: from forge welding and forging, tempering and annealing, to the wet grinding of the double-sided hollow ground blade and the mounting of the handle. Heated up in glowing fire at a temperature of more than 1,000 degrees, the red glowing blade blank is forged on the anvil, formed by targeted, elemental hammer blows. From 400 layers of Damascus steel and a cutting edge in finest black carbon steel, which can be seen under the wild Damascus pattern, a fine blade is crafted with outstanding hardness of 64 – 65 Rockwell (HRC) and long-term edge retention. For numerous well-known top chefs as well as connoisseurs of the particular and authentic, the Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE is the first choice in knives. There is a variety of 17 different handles of precious woods or selected special synthetics such as micarta, juma ivory or juma black and a choice of steel, silver, gold platinum collars available. Special requests are gladly taken into account at an extra cost. Each Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE knife with cutting edge is shipped in a luxurious piano lacquer box and with a high-quality leather sheath.

    Layers: 400

    Thickness: 4mm

    Available in handle options: Amboina, Bahia Rosenhls, Bog-Oak, Cocobolo, Eukalyptus, Grenadill, Makassar and Walnuss.

    NOTE: This knife is made on special requests that means it can take upto 3 weeks to get in stock once ordered.

    Hammer Knives Set of 2

    Made in Seki by a small group of nokaji whose skills have been passed down over the course of 3 generations, Hammer Collection blades are amongst the sharpest we sell within their price point and beyond. The bewitchingly intricate beauty of these 33 layers Damascus knives is matched by their effectiveness and unparalleled ease of maintenance. The central core is VG10 which is laminated with 16 layers of soft stainless on each side. The hand hammered surface of the blade fulfils a number of practical functions as well as imbuing an intriguing pattern unique to each maker. By hand hammering the body of the blade's molecules are pushed closer together thus increasing strength and toughness, a much needed addition to these satiny edges tho’ enduring are delicate. The hand hammer process also allows the actual edge to be innately more even thus facilitating easy re-sharpening. Also, the random hollows along the body of the blade act like ‘granton' indentations thus ensuring that ingredients fall away more easily. The knives of the Hammer Collection hold a very special significance to JKC as they are the perfect tool to demonstrate the edge maintenance technique we call stropping. The inevitable disbelief of customers upon hearing that blades can be made and kept considerably keener by brushing the edge on a newspaper is easily dissolved, as nearly all our knives can easily be transformed into utter sharpness this way. Due to the ultra thinness of the central core, and exceptional qualities innate within these very special traditionally made blades the edge can be taken from resisting tomato skin backwards and forwards to absolutely silky cutting action within under 30 seconds of stropping on newspaper. Handles are D shaped and comprised of luxurious and enduring red sandalwood, with black lacquered collars. Knives come in individual boxes. Set Includes: 1 x Utility knife 150mm for utility work. 1 x Santoku knife 180mm for Multipurpose

  18. Yasuo 33 Layers Utility 135mm

    Made to a JKC custom design. We have contracted the best commercial maker in Seki to produce this range of 33 Layer hammer beaten Damascus blades to suit the needs of the typical Western kitchen which often has users that utilise a more European method to cut – using force rather than edge length. The cold forged blade is tough, hard and easy to look after. At this price point this si the best knife we sell. The sharpening, with the ultra-thin core is very easy and remains so over the many years this knife is designed to be used in a busy kitchen.

  19. Gold Kitano Set of 3 Nakiri 160mm (for chopping vegetable)

    New

    Gold Kitano Set of 3

    Made in a small workshop in the outskirts of Osaka in an area close to Sakai these 3 layer knives have a central core of VG10 No1. A compact range it represents the 4 most popular shapes. These knives are fully roll forged from a thicker blank than our Warikomi Collection (which uses the same steel). Therefore greater pressure was required to achieve a similar eventual thickness. This extra pressure has resulted in a slightly denser blade with a more aligned molecular structure which will stay sharper longer and is equally easy to resharpen. The hardness after final quenching is an outstanding 60:62 HRC. This is a good alternative to our Tamahagane Collection if a Multi-layered Damascus blade is not a priority. The handle is crafted from pakkawood to further enhance the quality and ensure longevity. Knives come in individual boxes. Set Includes: 1 x Utility knife 135mm for utility work. 1 x Nakiri knife 165mm for vegetables. 1 x Gyuto knife 180mm for meat
