Model 1963

In 1963, at age 78, Ernest Warther made his last pocket knife. It was number 500 and it had handles made of abalone pearl.

It was in these later years that the Warther pocket knives, made by Mooney (1885-1973) and son Dave (1926-2011), were often made with abalone and mother of pearl handles.

Today, the Model 1963 is fitted with a variety of different pearl handle material including abalone and Mother of Pearl.

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 box for the model 1963 is of wild cherry.

The knife measures 3.75" long when folded and 6.75" when unfolded.
