Ernest "Mooney" Warther made his first kitchen knife in 1902. More than 110 years later, Warther Cutlery is still producing handcrafted cutlery, using many of the same designs and techniques that Mooney used. The knives are made using 100% American made materials; the steel is high-quality powdered tool steel from New York, the handles are birch wood from Vermont, and the rivets are from Chicago. Since each knife is made one at a time, Warther Cutlery is unlike any other kitchen knife available today. The knives are a unique combination of beauty and durability. The high quality steel along with the durability of the handles allows these knives to be passed down from generation to generation, making them lasting gifts. Not only does Warther Cutlery sharpen all their knives for free, they also stand behind their knives with the Warther Family Lifetime Guarantee. It is because of one man's passion and intellect that the Warther family is still producing high-quality kitchen knives made with the same quality, hand-crafted traditions more than 110 years after Mooney created his first knife. Mooney is considered to be a mechanical and artistic genius for his carvings and Warther Cutlery is a reflection of those qualities as well. Warther Cutlery is exemplified by the harmony of beauty and quality forged from years of timehonored, family tradition. Warther Cutlery is exclusively produced and sold in Mooney's hometown of Dover, Ohio.
