B09 SILVERWOOD

The Kestrel 'Silverwood' features a beautiful frame in hand-carved sterling silver, inlaid with amboyna burl. The blade is hand-forged 'Raindrop' damascus by Mike Norris; the one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with sapphires.
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 ‘Silverwood’ 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

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.

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.

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.

Amethyst material image

Amethyst

Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz. It is a semiprecious stone and is the traditional birthstone for February.
Because of its wine-like color, early Greek legends associated amethyst with Bacchus, the god of wine. Other legends reflected beliefs that amethyst kept its wearer clear-headed and quick-witted in battle and in business affairs. Because amethyst was associated with wine, it was believed that wearing amethyst prevented drunkeness.
