Nesmuk // Century Chef's Knife
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. Nesmuk draws on many years of studies and comparative analytical tests to ensure perfect blade geometry and maximum precision in every one of their knives.
The Nesmuk Century Chef's Knife is beautifully handcrafted and entirely unique. It features a blade made of 640 layers of hand smithed Damascus steel and a cutting layer of the finest carbon steel. This blade is connected to the stunning, 5,000-year-old bog oak handle by a matte 960 platinum ferrule adorned with 25 hand-picked, brilliant-cut diamonds. Manufactured with the greatest care and precision, this knife is considered perhaps the most expensive knife in the world.
The blade of the Century Chef's Knife was hand-forged by Nesmuk's founder, Lars Scheidler, in a charcoal fire to impart more carbon in the steel for a higher hardness and greater stability. The blade was then completely hand ground at a 15 degree angle for maximum sharpness. The cutting edge has a thickness of 0.8 µ.
Extraordinary knives require an extraordinary presentation, which is why this unique piece is delivered in a noble piano lacquer box with matching leather sheath and certificate of authenticity.
