FEATURES & SPECS

MATERIALS:

METEORITE

William Henry uses beautiful sections of the Gibeon Meteorite, which fell in prehistoric times in Namibia. It was named after the nearest town: Gibeon
The fragments of the meteorite in the strewn field are dispersed over an elliptical area 171 miles long and 62 miles wide; it was discovered by the local Nama people and used by them to make tools and weapons.

In 1836 the English captain J. E. Alexander collected samples of the meteorite and sent them to London. There John Herschel analyzed them and confirmed for the first time the extraterrestrial nature of the material.

The Gibeon meteorite is composed of an iron-nickel alloy containing significant amounts of cobalt and phosphorus. The crystal structure of this meteorite provides a fine example of the Widmanstätten patterns: these figures of long nickel-iron crystals are of extraterrestrial origin, and cannot occur naturally on earth.  As a purely  natural material, the patterns may include small inclusions, distinctive and unique to each item we produce.

STERLING SILVER

Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by mass of silver and usually 7.5% by mass of copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925. The sterling alloy originated in continental Europe and was being used for commerce as early as the 12th century in the area that is now northern Germany. William Henry uses the latest state-of-the-art casting equipment to create mesmerizing pieces that are often considered par with our hand-carved work.

Our first gold dog tag was custom designed for a soldier being deployed to an inhospitable part of the world, where the danger of becoming isolated and self-sufficient is very real.

Worn on your person, the SafeSoldier gold dog tag is security you can carry with you wherever you go. Designed to be worn behind a standard military issue dog tag, each gold dog tag has a reinforced stainless steel eyelet to increase durabilty. SafeSoldier gold dog tags can be broken into approximately equal sections should the need arise. Each tag section bears a stamp indicating the karat of the gold. Only gold refined in the USA is used in our gold dog tags. Each SafeSoldier gold dog tag comes with free engraving on the face. limited to three lines of 12 characters or less.

KOFTGARI

Koftgari is the name for fine gold (and/or silver) patterns inlayed into parkerized steel. This ancient Indian technique, done entirely by hand, involves creating a very fine cross-hatch grid in the steel and then burnishing 24K gold (and/or silver) into a pattern that is bound by the cross-hatch. Parkerizing involves soaking the steel in a boiling solution of salts to oxidize the steel a deep brown/blue. Beautiful and timeless, koftgari is nearly a lost art. William Henry's koftgari comes from 2 small villages in India, home of the very few Indian artisans that still master this technique.

SNAKEWOOD

The name "snake wood" was clearly inspired by the snakeskin-like markings that decorate this exotic wood originally found in Western Australia. Extremely hard and heavy, it is one of the most expensive woods in the world. We use only the finest snakewood, responsibly sourced from Suriname, chosen for outstanding color and pattern. All William Henry's snakewood is resin-stabilized for durability.

HAND-FORGED DAMASCUS

Damascus steel was a term used by several Western cultures from the Medieval period onward to describe a type of steel created in India and used from about 300 BC to 1700 AD. These blades were characterized by distinctive patterns of banding and mottling reminiscent of flowing water. They were reputed to be not only tough and resistant to shattering, but capable of being honed to a sharp and resilient edge. William Henry's damascus is made from several types of steel welded together to form a billet. The patterns vary depending on how the damascus artist works the billet. The billet is drawn out and folded until the desired number of layers are formed. William Henry damascus billets are forged with a minimum of 300 layers. William Henry works with a handful of the very best damascus artists/forgers in the U.S.

MATERIALS

SMOKY QUARTZ

Smoky quartz is a grey, translucent variety of quartz. It ranges in clarity from almost complete transparency to a brownish-gray crystal that is almost opaque. Smoky Quartz was known as a Stone of Power. To the ancient Druids, it was sacred and signified the potent dark power of Earth gods and goddesses.

TITANIUM

Titanium is a low density, strong, lustrous, corrosion-resistant (including sea water, aqua regia and chlorine) metal with a silver color. It was discovered in Great Britain by William Gregor in 1791, and named by Martin Heinrich Klaproth for the Titans of Greek mythology William Henry uses only aerospace-grade titanium alloy for our frames, clips, and micro-fasteners. Called 6Al/4V, it is titanium with a little aluminum and vanadium added in for additional toughness and tensile strength.

DRAGON FIRE

BB15 DB T

UNIQUE MATERIAL

This piece features one of our hallmark materials.
These natural materials owe their patterns and distinctive color palette to the specific and often unique conditions in which they came to exist.
Because of the fossilization process, soil composition and meteorology, these rare fossils, exotic woods, shells and rocks can show dramatic differences in color and pattern, making every piece a one-of-a-kind.
When you purchase a piece featuring our Unique Materials logo, the object you receive is indeed truly unique. It becomes a distinctive symbol of your own character, and an integral part of your living legacy;
a rare and precious personality statement that will accompany you for a lifetime before being handed down to another generation.
Please note that for these reasons, when you buy a William Henry featuring one of our unique materials, the piece you receive may look different from the one shown on our website. A truly original one-of-a-kind

TIGERS EYE

Also called tiger's eye or tigers eye, is a type of macrocrystalline or fibrous quartz that forms from crocidolite when quartz crystals become embedded within it. Crocidolite is actually a type of asbestos. As the quartz crystals develop, the crocidolite dissolves away but the fibrous shapes remain. Associated with courage and confidence, which comes from understanding your true desires, Tiger’s Eye is a stone that helps you discover your authentic self through testing your perceived limitations.

FOSSIL DINOSAUR BONE

Dinosaur Bone is probably the most exotic of our fossil materials — the fossil comes from a 100 million year-old Apatosaurus. Found and sourced in Utah, dinosaur bone offers the possibility of owning one of the most ancient zoological testaments of the planet. The colors can vary from red to brown, black and green, depending on the minerals surrounding the bone as it became petrified.

BLACK ONYX

Onyx is a stone that appears in various cultures and it is regarded as one of the most popular gemstones in the world. It is a type of oxide mineral that has dominant silica ingredients. The stone itself is famous for beautiful, silky luster that also looks vitreous if the stone is already treated and polished. Black colored onyx is of course the most famous and sought out variant. Onyx is also part of gemstone metaphysical theories and gemstone healing therapies

STERLING SILVER

Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by mass of silver and usually 7.5% by mass of copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925. The sterling alloy originated in continental Europe and was being used for commerce as early as the 12th century in the area that is now northern Germany.
