MATERIALS:

SPRUCE PINE CONE

One of the largest, hardiest and most adaptable spruce in the world, Norway blue spruce is a native of Europe, and is commonly called the mountain spruce there. Due to its hardiness and adaptability it has been introduced and thrives in many areas of the world. William Henry uses the pinecones from this majestic tree to create beautiful inlays for our knives. Before use, the pinecone sections are stabilized with a color pigmented resin which enhances the contrast of the veneer and gives the scales a blue or red tonality. All our spruce cone is sourced responsibly.

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.

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.
