Kestrel 'Portugal'

Edition of 25 pieces
B09 1115 PORTUGAL

Kestrel 'Portugal'

B09 1115 PORTUGAL

The Kestrel 'Portugal' features a beautiful frame in hand-carved sterling silver, inlaid with a beautiful piece of 100,000 year-old fossil coral. The blade is 'Wave' damascus with and extra-strong core in ZDP-189; the one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with white topaz.
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 ‘Portugal’ features some of the precious materials, artistry, and hand-forged metals that are the hallmark of William Henry's collections. A timeless heirloom to be proudly worn and used for a lifetime before being handed-down to another generation.

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.

Carved Sterling Silver material image

Carved Sterling Silver

Carved Silver is done by hand with chisels and rotary tools. William Henry works with the finest silversmiths to create elaborate (and durable) carvings in sterling silver. In many cases, we use colored sapphires and other precious stones, set in 18K gold bezels, to further decorate these masterful carvings.

Fossil Coral material image

Fossil Coral

According to geologists, this fossil coral is approximately 110,000 years old.  Found in abundance in Florida quarry mines, these exquisite scales are hand-picked findings which would otherwise be crushed and used in cement.   Fossil coral is not living coral, therefore has no odors.

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
