Kestrel 'Whitney'

Edition of 25 pieces
B09 WHITNEY

Kestrel 'Whitney'

B09 WHITNEY

The Kestrel 'Whitney' features a beautiful frame in hand-carved sterling silver, inlaid with 10,000 year-old fossil walrus ivory. The blade is 'Copper Wave' damascus steel with an extra strong core in VG5; 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 ‘Whitney’ 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

'Copper Wave' damascus material image

'Copper Wave' damascus

This beautiful William Henry exclusive blade steel (patent pending) incorporates copper and stainless steel into a 45 layer Wave Damascus that features a core of VG-5 stainless steel. This steel attains a hardness of HRC 59, excellent by any standards, at the cutting edge.

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 Walrus tusk

Ranging from 8,000 to 10,000 years old, this fossil ivory is harvested by native Americans in Alaska, and ranks among the rarest of all natural materials. 

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
