Materials

Hand-forged damascus material image

Hand-forged damascus

Damascus steel was a term used by several Western cultures from the Medieval period onward to describe a type of steel created in India and used in swordmaking from about 300 BC to 1700 AD. These swords were characterized by distinctive patterns of banding and mottling reminiscent of flowing water. Such blades were reputed to be not only tough and resistant to shattering, but capable of being honed to a sharp and resilient edge. William Henry's damascus is made from several types of steel welded together to form a billet.
The patterns vary depending on how the damascus artist works the billet. The billet is drawn out and folded until the desired number of layers are formed. William Henry damascus billets are forged with a minimum of 300 layers. William Henry works with a handful of the very best damascus artists/forgers in the U.S.

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.

Citrine material image

Citrine

Citrine is a variety of quartz whose color ranges from a pale yellow to brown due to ferric impurities.
The name is derived from Latin citrina which means "yellow" and is also the origin of the word "citron." Sometimes citrine and amethyst can be found together in the same crystal, which is then referred to as ametrine.
