Kestrel Cedar

Edition of 50 pieces
B09 CEDAR

Kestrel Cedar

B09 CEDAR

The Kestrel 'Cedar' features a light and resilient frame in aerospace grade titanium, inlaid with fossil russian cedar. The blade is 'Wave' damascus steel with an extra-strong core in ZDP-189; the one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with blazing smoky quartz gemstones.
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 ‘Cedar’ features some of the hi-tech and hand-forged materials that are the hallmark of William Henry's collections; a distinctive personality statement to be worn and used for a lifetime.

Unique Material Info

Unique Material

This piece features one of our hallmark materials.
These natural materials owe their patterns and distinctive color palette to the specific and often unique conditions in which they came to exist.
Because of the fossilization process, soil composition and meteorology, these rare fossils, exotic woods, shells and rocks can show dramatic differences in color and pattern, making every piece a one-of-a-kind.
 
When you purchase a piece featuring our Unique Materials logo, the object you receive is indeed truly unique. It becomes a distinctive symbol of your own character, and an integral part of your living legacy;
a rare and precious personality statement that will accompany you for a lifetime before being handed down to another generation.
 
Please note that for these reasons, when you buy a William Henry featuring one of our unique materials, the piece you receive may look different from the one shown on our website. A truly original one-of-a-kind.

Materials

'Wave' Damascus with ZDP-189 material image

'Wave' Damascus with 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. This material can be dark-etched for contrast, or etched and re-polished for a more subtle pattern.

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.

Smoky Quartz material image

Smoky Quartz

Smoky quartz is a grey, translucent variety of quartz. It ranges in clarity from almost complete transparency to a brownish-gray crystal that is almost opaque.
Smoky Quartz was known as a Stone of Power. To the ancient Druids, it was sacred and signified the potent dark power of Earth gods and goddesses.
