David Warther Knives Model 1910


By 1910 Ernest had solidified the unique Warther pocket knife design and was utilizing bone as the handle material.

Today the Model 1910 comes in a variety of different colored bone handles crafted from North American cattle bone. Bone has its own look and feel and is pleasant to the touch.

The bolsters and liners are of Nickel Silver. This has been the traditional bolster material since these knives were first made over a century ago. Nickel Silver, also known as German Silver, is a very tactile material that holds a warmth, a specific feel and an alluring weight that speaks well to the holder.

Nickel Silver retains an old world medieval depth of character that lets you know it is not stainless steel. This look and feel is an earmark of the Warther pocketknife.

The box that holds the knife is in the shape of the earliest Egyptian ships to reflect my work in carving the history of the ship. It symbolizes new beginnings. The box for the Model 1910 is of maple - one of the two primary woods grandpa carved with in 1910.
