We love the quality and craftsmanship of Gunter Wilhelm knives, but don’t take just take our word for it, hear what some foodsport champs and competitors have to say.


“The best knives to work with.”

As the 2016 World Steak Champion and overall World Food Champion, I am ecstatic to be a part of the Gunter Wilhelm family. Gunter Wilhelm knives are the best knives to work with as a home cook, and also a competitive cook. We take great pride in trimming our steaks for competition with the nice selection of Gunter Wilhelm knives, as well as, to cut into our delicious steaks after they are grilled up and ready for presentation at our foodsport events and better yet, when we sit down at home for a nice dinner. Gunter Wilhelm has changed the lives of many in the foodsport, they have helped to make our skills shine with the great knives that they have to offer.

“In the upper echelon.”

One of the most consistent brands you see in the upper echelon of foodsport is Gunter Wilhelm cookware and cutlery. Used by chef’s in all disciplines and categories, they have been a partner with Old Virginia Smoke since we were introduced to them in 2016 at the World Food Championships. High-quality consistency is the key to their success–both in the equipment and the customer service that they provide.

“An authentic brand with even better quality.”

If a brand genuinely wants to make a social contribution, it should start with who they are, not what they do. For only when a brand has defined itself and its core values can it identify causes or social responsibility initiatives that are in alignment with its authentic brand story that is why I believe in Gunter Wilhelm. It is an authentic brand with even better quality.

“Right tool for the right job is the right knife.”

Excellence in competition cooking requires passion creativity and the very best ingredients. The same is said about the tools of an award-winning competitor. My first tools to be unpacked at any event is my knives, specifically my Gunter Wilhelm knives when second best just will not do. I’m proud to see GW at the World Food Championships, sharing the love and passion of foodsport. The right tool for the right job is the right knife.
