MATERIALS:

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.

ZINC MATRIX TURQUOISE

The Kingman Turquoise Mine in Arizona is one of the oldest and highest producing Turquoise Mines in America. It was originally discovered by prehistoric Indians well over 1,000 years ago. Kingman Turquoise is known for its beautiful sky blue color and produces many variations of blue Turquoise.
Our Zinc-Matrix Turquoise is made with Kingman Turquoise infused with zinc, creating a striking contrast between the soft blues of the Turquoise and the shiny, contemporary look of the metal.

WAVE DAMASCUS WITH ZDP-189

William Henry’s patent pending Wave Damascus features a ZDP-189 core (HRC 67) clad with alternating layers of stainless steel and nickel silver. The billet, 45 layers in all, is patterned with a custom die to create the undulating waves that emerge across the bevels of the blade. This material can be dark-etched for contrast, or etched and re-polished for a more subtle pattern.

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.
