In 2002, Gunter Wilhelm® was born with the mission to design, manufacture, and market an outstanding brand of high-quality knives and cookware at an affordable price. After interviewing hundreds of chefs in the New York City metropolitan area about what features they would like to have, the challenge was clear. These chefs wanted a more balanced, heftier knife, with a sharp heel, and smooth corners. They wanted a balance of form and function; a knife to match the artistry of their signature dishes. Thus the journey started.
After an intensive R&D effort, and many prototypes, our Executive Chef Series was created. Our unique, patented triple-tang handle design that features a balanced blade, ergonomic hold, high-quality cutlery collection with high attention to detail, and fine workmanship adds a layer of comfort and efficiency to help your productivity in the kitchen.
