Use & Care
How do I care for my knife?
Our knives are made from quality materials and should last if you take good care of them. Following please find few guidelines:
Hand wash and dry immediately after use.
Do not put in dishwasher as it might damage the high carbon steel and handles.
Do not leave in water for an extended period of time.
Hone your straight fine edge blade regularly.
Sharpen your straight fine edge blade as needed on a sharpening rod (diamond or ceramic), whetstone or similar quality sharpening tool.
Executive Chef Series edge is 20-22 degrees on each side.
ProCut collections (Lightning, Thunder, and Premier) are 10-15 degrees on each side.
Serrated edges should be sharpened as needed by using special tools.
The meat cleaver edge is 30-35 degrees on each side.

Gunter Wilhelm Hassle-Free lifetime warranty covers manufacturing defects (materials and workmanship).
A dull knife which requires sharpening is not a manufacturing defect, but basic maintenance.
Rust spots might appear in cases that the knife was placed in a dishwasher or left in water for a long period of time. To remove any rust spot, please use a Stainless Steel polisher cream/past such as Bar Keepers Friend or similar.
Woodblocks, sharpening tools, and blade protectors are not covered by our lifetime warranty policy since they are subject to normal and natural attrition.

The Vegetable Knife is made from X50CrMoV15 High Carbon stainless steel, which has corrosion resistance and offers good hardness, for long-lasting edge retention.
Our ergonomic handle shape is engineered for superior control, agility, and comfort – Premier ProCut offers a Full Triple Tang, well-balanced handle that creates better access to the full length of the blade.
While most top knives have edge angles of 25 – 15 degrees, we use more acute 14-degree angles for a noticeably sharper cutting face.
