Materials

Koftgari material image

Koftgari

Koftgari is the name for fine gold (and/or silver) patterns inlayed into parkerized steel. This ancient Indian technique, done entirely by hand, involves creating a very fine cross-hatch grid in the steel and then burnishing 24K gold (and/or silver) into a pattern that is bound by the cross-hatch. Parkerizing involves soaking the steel in a boiling solution of salts to oxidize the steel a deep brown/blue. Beautiful and timeless, koftgari is nearly a lost art.

William Henry's koftgari comes from 2 small villages in India, home of the very few Indian artisans that still master this technique.

Amboyna Burl material image

Amboyna Burl

Also known as 'New Guinea Rosewood', Amboyna hardwood, is a purplish and rose-scented wood which is found in Southeast Asia and Western Pacific Ocean. The wood known in Indonesia as amboyna is the burl of the tree, named after Ambon, where much of this material was originally found. sliced amboyna produces an extremely decorative veneer. William Henry uses this wood to produce beautiful inlays for our knives. Interesting fact: the wood is also used to make the keys on a marimba.

White Topaz material image

White Topaz

Topaz is a rare, extremely hard gemstone with an exceptionally wide color range that, besides brown, includes various tones and saturations of blue, green, yellow, orange, red, pink, and purple.
The ancient Greeks believed that topaz gave them strength. In Europe during the Renaissance (the period from the 1300s to the 1600s) people thought that topaz could break magic spells and dispel anger. For centuries, many people in India have believed that topaz worn above the heart assures long life, beauty, and intelligence.

Today, topaz is one of the US birthstones for November, while blue topaz is a birthstone for December
