Making plans of arriving in mid to late 2019
Warther pocketknives have been made in Dover, Ohio since 1905 by 3 generations in the Warther family.
Ernest Mooney Warther (1885-1973) originated his pocket knife style in 1905 and solidified this unique design by 1910. He continued making these knives into the early 1960's.
Mooney's son Dave (1926-2011) started making pocket knives when he was a teenager in the late 30's and continued making them into the 1990's.
Dave's son Dale (1952-2010) crafted pocket knives beginning in the 1970's. With the death of Dale in 2010 the pocket knife was no longer available.
Today, David Warther II ( Dave's son and Dale's brother) is working to bring the pocket knife back by mid 2019. The knives will be made by David in his Dover, Ohio shop that is a separate shop from the kitchen knife factory.
The new Warther pocket knife will be sold at David Warther Carvings and Gift Shop in Sugarcreek, Ohio and on this website. For more information phone to 330-852-6096.
David Warther Carvings in Sugarcreek, Ohio showcases the artwork of David Warther. Working on location in his workshop at the exhibit David has carved 87 miniature ships in antique ivory, ebony wood and abalone pearl.
The museum and gift shop are a key attraction for those folks visiting Ohio's Amish country. The Warther kitchen knives are sold in the gift shop.
