The blade is made with black coated ZDP-189 laminate. William Henry's exclusive Wave pattern damascus, forged from nickel and stainless steel around a 'core' of ZDP-189 at HRC 65-67. The polished blade is coated with a molecular bond Tungsten Carbide for superlative wear resistance.
The frame is made 6AI/4V, which is an aerospace grade Titanium alloy that is strong, light, corrosion proof, and virtually indestructible. Titanium requires no special care or maintenance but is not impervious to surface scuffs and scratches.
The inlay is made up of fossil mammoth bone. This material is natural bone from prehistory, dating back between 6 and 10 thousand years. It is harvested in Alaska and Siberia, often from underwater. Stabilizing the fossil bone provides a great level of protection, but is not impervious to the elements. Avoid dramatic climate change, extreme heat or wet conditions.
This piece features premium natural spessartite gemstones, precision cut and set in an 18k gold bezel. 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 paired with a braided leather cord, and the ClipCase carrying system is crafted from fine lined leather with a tempered stainless steel clip.
