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 a few guidelines:
Hand wash and dry immediately after use.
Do not put it in a 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). Terms and conditions apply
A dull knife that requires sharpening is not a manufacturing defect, but basic maintenance.
Rust spots might appear in cases where the knife was placed in a dishwasher and/or left in water for a long period of time, and/or not dried properly. To remove any rust spots, 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.
