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. The beauty of Nickel Silver is that it develops a satin finish over time as it gradually takes on micro-scratches from handling. This feature of developing its own satin sheen from the original high gloss is natural and is to be expected of this time honored material. The pocket worn look and feel of Nickel Silver 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.
