The blade is made with hand-forged damascus created from multiple alloys of stainless steel. This beautiful material is heat treated to Rockwell 58-59 for excellent sharpness and edge retention.
The frame is made of aerospace grade titanium. 6AI/4V is an aerospace grade Titanium alloy that is strong, light, corrosion proof, and virtually indestructible.
The scale/inlay is made of abalone, a shell William Henry gathers from around the world, working with sustainable farmed sources wherever possible. This material is very lustrous and stable and will wear well for a lifetime and beyond, but is susceptible to damage if dropped.
This piece features premium natural gemstones, precision cut and set i 18k gold bezels. The gems are mechanically captured in William Henry's stainless fittings, and will last a lifetime and more.
The fittings/fasteners on this knife are custom fabricated to our specifications from stainless and titanium. The lanyard bail and beads are sterling silver with a braided leather cord, and the Slip Case is lined ostrich leather.
