Like any other knife, Gunter Wilhelm® fine cutlery requires care, regular maintenance and sharpening as needed. To ensure your satisfaction for many years to come, we recommend the following
Our cutlery is made of X50CrMoV15 High Carbon no-stain-steel, which is the metal of choice for high end knives. It is a mixture of high carbon steel and stainless steel. After use, hand wash and dry right away;
Do not use dishwasher or leave them sitting in water for extended periods of time. .Using dishwasher or leaving the knives in water for extended periods of time might create rust on the knives, and/or damage the handles;
Always use the honing steel to realign the edge before or after use, and sharpen the knives as needed; .Use a quality cutting board. We highly recommend using bamboo or wood cutting boards. Avoid glass, ceramic and plastic cutting boards as they will dull your knives quickly;
Use the right knife for the right job. Don’t try to bend and/or cut frozen food and/or bones, open cans, use as a screwdriver and /or any other improper use;
If the knife has some signs of rust (which might happen if left in water or if you use a dishwasher), please use Bars Keepers Friend™ Stainless Steel Polish (or similar) to clean your knife ASAP. Once the rust is removed. make sure you hand wash and dry the knife after use.
Basic honing technique:
Hold the honing steel vertically, handle is upwards and put the tip of the honing steel on a non slippery surface.
Place the knife on the honing steel. The angel should be 20o-22o degrees. Start honing from the base of knife’s edge all the way to the tip of the knife and switch sides.
Repeat this 4-6 times on each side.
Gunter Wilhelm® implements rigorous inspection and quality control throughout the manufacturing process. Starting with the production of our virgin X50CrMoV15 High Carbon Stainless Steel Alloy all the way to the packaging of the finished goods, we check, monitor, inspect and verify each step of the manufacturing process so that each item meets our high standards.
Gunter Wilhelm® is proud to say that our fine cutlery meets and passes the high requirements of the EN ISO 8442-5: 2004 standard – Material and articles in contact with foodstuffs – cutlery and table hollowware -- Part 5 – Specification for sharpness and edge retention test of cutlery. This standard ensures that the materials used to manufacture your Gunter Wilhelm® blades are safe for use with food AND that our fine blades meet the standard requirements for sharpness and edge retention.
The sharpness and edge retention testing are performed by the CATRA (Cutlery & Allied Trades Research Association) test machine. The principal of the test is to reproduce the cutting action by forward and backward strokes into a pack of test cards containing 5% quartz under controlled parameters of load (50N), speed (50mm/sec) and stroke (40mm). Each cutting cycle consist of one forward and one backward stroke after which the amount of card cut is measured.
The ICP (Initial Cutting Performance) is the total depth of card cut during the first three cutting strokes and is a measure of the initial sharpness of the blade. The CER (Cutting Edge Retention) is the total depth of card cut during the test, and is a measure of the ability of a cutting edge to resist wear throughout its useful life.
Gunter Wilhelm is the only cutlery manufacturer that offers a lifetime warranty that covers you against manufacturing defects as well as accidents.
