The A300-3B features a frame in hand-finished aerospace grade titanium, and inlays of compressed acrylic resin with an inset engraving plate. The blade is crafted from a three layer billet featuring a core of 10Cr15Mov, a rugged stainless steel honed to a razor’s edge. Final touches include black DLC (diamond like coating) on the blade and select fittings, and a pocket clip that allows safe ‘tip-down’ carry.
Blade 3.00" (76.2mm)
Handle 3.63" (92mm)
Overall open 7.00" (177mm)
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.
CPM 20-CV is an ultra high-grade stainless steel developed by Crucible Metals, the leading US innovator of performance steels. CPM stands for Crucible Powder Metals, their most exclusive engineered alloys, and the 20-CV indicates an infusion of Vanadium, Chromium, Molybdenum and Tungsten for wear resistance, sharpness, and corrosion protection. Tough, durable, razor sharp while still being ‘sharpenable’, and stainless. Built to last a lifetime, proudly offered on select models from William Henry.
Acrylic resins are a group of related thermoplastic or thermosetting plastic substances derived from acrylic acid
Acrylic resin is extremely weather and scratch proof. In solid form, the acrylic resin can last for decades, and It does not yellow when exposed to sunlight, even after many years.
William Henry uses innovative acrylic resins with rare and original color compositions.
10Cr15CoMoV steel is a Chinese stainless steel equivalent to Japanese VG10 steel. It contains high amounts of Carbon and Chromium which give it high hardness and excellent corrosion resistance. 10Cr15CoMoV stainless steel is used in the knife industry to make highly polished thin blades with excellent edge retention perfect for slicing.
