Limited Lifetime Warranty Policy Details
Subject to the conditions and terms stipulated in this Warranty, Gunter Wilhelm ("GW") warrants to the consumer, initial purchaser, or gift recipient of Gunter Wilhelm Cutlery & Cookware products that the product will be devoid of defects in materials and workmanship under regular usage and conditions for the entirety of your lifetime (referred to as the "Coverage Period").
Our Warranty comprehensively covers all components of the product (with exceptions outlined below) and offers protection against any defects in materials or workmanship during normal use and conditions within the United States of America.

While Gunter Wilhelm products are precision tools, they are not invulnerable. The following are excluded from our Warranty:
Injuries and damage resulting from unauthorized alterations, misuse, abuse, neglect, force majeure (e.g., fire, tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes), accidents (e.g., dropping the blade), improper use (e.g., cutting frozen foods or bones, opening jars or cans, cutting on dense surfaces like cooling racks, glass, granite, and stainless steel).
Damages due to the use of unprofessional sharpening services and/or tools for blade maintenance.
Damages caused by neglecting or violating Gunter Wilhelm’s Use & Care instructions, such as placing knives in the dishwasher, exposing blades and/or handles to fire or heat sources, leaving knives outdoors exposed to weather conditions, etc.
Wood components or knives with wooden handles, as wood is a natural material that cannot be guaranteed.
Sharpening tools and honing steels, due to their abrasive nature.
Normal wear and tear, including dullness, bending, scratching, corrosion, or markings on straight-edge and serrated blades.
