Description: This limited release folder is William Henry's work at its best. Carved pearl scales compliment a mokume gane frame and Copper Wave damascus blade. This is number 54 of only 100 folders created.
William Henry’s Wave Damascus is created from 45 layers of three separate metal alloys. The center of each billet, where it intersects the cutting edge, is VG5 stainless steel. This core material ensures unmatched sharpness and performance, while the alternating exterior layers create texture, contrast, beauty, and blade strength. Each blade is hand-ground and polished. The Copper Wave damascus is particularly unique and integrates layers of copper into the damascus for a particularly dramatic effect.
The button lock, thumb stud, and sterling silver accents are inlaid with opals. The entire frame is created from wave pattern mokume gane. This technique forges non-ferrous metals into damascene layers. This perfectly compliments the Copper Wave pattern blade. Whitelip mother of pearl scales have been meticulously carved and are set with sterling silver accents. Stainless micro-screws create the final open-frame construction of the handle. The leather lanyard is completed with a sterling silver bail and metal beads. Accompanied by William Henry presentation wood box and brown ostrich leather ClipCase for easy carry. Both the knife and the box are individually numbered. This folder is number 54 of 100 made. Serial No. 810-920 054/100. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
