Nesmuk Folder: AN EXPRESSION OF PURE ELEGANCE Whenever Nesmuk develops a knife it should set new standards in its category regarding design as well as the selection of materials and processing. So are our hand-crafted and finished Nesmuk folding knives, which demonstrate the highest skilled craftsmanship and special know-how. Each knife is unique from the blade over the spring up to the bezel. Clear aesthetics, the specific shape of the blade and the unusual steel selection make Nesmuk folders the ideal choice for cutting meat in a stylish and respectful way even away from home. They are a clear statement for gourmets who know how to appreciate the extra­ordinary. Pure craftsmanship: from fire

Black jade is also called god’s stone. Jade is a ­gemstone which originates from volcanic processes with a compressive strength higher than steel. Tiger iron is a fusion of the gemstones tiger’s-eye, haematite and red jasper. Since each of these stones has different characteristics it is r­egarded as one of the most difficult gemstones to p ­ rocess. For the exclusive handles of the Nesmuk folder the gemstones must be chosen very carefully. Extensive ­expertise is required to extract the most beautiful and ­robust pieces from the rough stone.

For our folding knives we use only selected precious woods, which are oiled and polished in an elaborate procedure. White Ebony: – Country of origin: South East Asia – Very rare wood with high hardness and density – Black with light-colored stripes OLIVE WOOD: – Country of origin: Mediterranean region – Pale brown, irregular dark stripes – A very decorative wood DESERT IRONWOOD: – Country of origin: Sonora desert, Mexico/USA – One of the densest woods worldwide – Darkens considerably, therefore Nesmuk solely offers the “high contrast” version BIRCH Burl, BLACK: – Country of origin: Europe – Soft, open-pored wood which is stabilised by liquid, coloured acrylic glass. The highly viscous glass is drawn into the interspaces of the wood by vacuum. After this treatment the wood is highly impact-resistant and can be processed exactly like dense, hard wood.
