Warther Kitchen Cutlery is made by 3rd and 4th generation Warther's, using the same old world craftsmanship passed down by Ernest "Mooney" Warther. Using the finest materials, the kitchen knives are designed and crafted for comfort and durability. The kitchen knives are made from CPM® S35VN and are tempered to a Rockwell C 58-60. The kitchen knives are polished to a convex grind, which can only be accomplished by hand grinding. This assures the kitchen knives retain a razor-like edge with just a light honing. The tooling design on the blade is done by hand and has been the Warther trademark since 1907. The blade runs completely through the handle for stability and balance. The handles are made of layers of birch and are riveted on the blades.
Chef Sam Morgante is the co-creator of the Warther Presidential Series Knife. He served as a White House Chef under former President George W. Bush. During this time Chef Sam was awarded the coveted Five Star Diamond Award (2003-2005). His personnel decorations include, the Navy/Marine Corps Commendation Medal, 7 Navy/Marine Corps Achievement Medals, 5 Naval Good Conduct Medals, plus service and campaign awards.
Chef Sam’s attention to detail can be seen in this beautifully, hand-crafted, American-made knife. Best of all, it's a Warther Knife which means that it will become a family heirloom and that will be cherished for many years to come!
