Kestrel 'Black Ice'

Edition of 10 pieces
B09 BLACK ICE

Kestrel 'Black Ice'

B09 BLACK ICE

The Kestrel 'Black Ice' features an aerospace-grade titanium bolster, inlaid with hand-carved mother of pearl. The blade is black tungsten DLC-coated 'wave' damascus with an extra strong core in ZDP-189; the one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with spinel gems.
The Kestrel is a compact but versatile folder that works and presents beautifully in any situation; the design, which offers a deep finger groove at the intersection between the handle and blade, makes this knife remarkably comfortable in the hand while being very small and easy to carry.
The ‘Black Ice’ features the exquisite artistry, exotic materials and hand-forged metals that are the hallmark of William Henry's collections.

Materials

Black Coated 'Wave' damascus & core in ZDP-189 material image

Black Coated 'Wave' damascus & core in ZDP-189

William Henry's patent pending Wave Damascus features a ZDP-189 core (HRC 67) clad with alternating layers of stainless steel and nickel silver. The billet, 45 layers in all, is patterned with a custom die to create the undulating waves that emerge across the bevels of the blade. These blades are finished with black tungsten coating.

Titanium material image

Titanium

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.

Carved Mother of Pearl material image

Carved Mother of Pearl

Mother of Pearl is the common name for iridescent nacre, a blend of minerals that are secreted by oysters and other mollusks and deposited inside their shells. William Henry uses premium mother of pearl material sourced directly from suppliers in Australia, selected for maximum color and figure. Most of our hand-carved mother of pearl is created in Bali by Lee Downey, who also works on most of our carved silver pieces.

Spinel material image

Spinel

Natural spinel is a gemstone that has become a great favorite with gem dealers and gem collectors; one might even say that spinel is for gemstone connoisseurs only.
It is a hard glassy mineral occurring as octahedral crystals of variable color and consisting chiefly of magnesium and aluminum oxides. Some spinels are among the most famous gemstones in the world: among them are the Black Prince's Ruby and the "Timur ruby" in the British Crown Jewels, and the "Côte de Bretagne", formerly from the French Crown jewels.
