Monarch Dundee

B05 DUNDEE

The Monarch 'Dundee' features a mesmerizing handle in 24K gold Koftgari, inlaid with Pinot Noir vine wood from Eyrie Vineyards. The blade is hand-forged 'Hornets Nest' damascus by Mike Norris; the one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with smoky quartz gem stones.
The Monarch 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 ‘Dundee’ features some of the most exotic 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.

Koftgari material image

Koftgari

Koftgari is the name for fine gold (and/or silver) patterns inlayed into parkerized steel. This ancient Indian technique, done entirely by hand, involves creating a very fine cross-hatch grid in the steel and then burnishing 24K gold (and/or silver) into a pattern that is bound by the cross-hatch. Parkerizing involves soaking the steel in a boiling solution of salts to oxidize the steel a deep brown/blue. Beautiful and timeless, koftgari is nearly a lost art.

William Henry's koftgari comes from 2 small villages in India, home of the very few Indian artisans that still master this technique.

Eyrie Vineyard pinot vine material image

Eyrie Vineyard pinot vine

In 1975, The Eyrie Vineyards produced the first American pinot noir to compete successfully in France with the renowned pinot noirs of Burgundy. Thanks to the close partnership with The Eyrie Vineyards, the 35 year old wood from that original and historic grapevine will live forever in a beautiful limited edition writing instrument by William Henry.

The Eyrie Vineyards was the first winemaker to grow pinot noir in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, where the temperatures, rainfall and day-lengths offer the grape its best home outside of Burgundy. In 1979, The Eyrie Vineyards placed in the top ten pinot noirs at the Olympiades des Vins in Paris. Surpassing hundreds of French winemakers, Eyrie’s pinot noir was the first American wine to successfully compete with the French Burgundies.
Hoping to overturn the rank achieved in Paris, a challenge tasting was restaged in Beaune in 1980, and to the wine world’s disbelief, Eyrie’s 1975 South Block Reserve came in only 2/10ths of a point below the winner, the 1959 Chambolle-Musigny from Joseph Drouhin.

The Eyrie Vineyards is a pioneer in American winemaking - a small business whose tireless and creative work has inspired and guided the United States among the most respected and top ranking wine producers in the world

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.
