The Monarch 'Hot Head' knife features a handle in hand-carved sterling silver by Lee Downey, inlaid with a spectacular 'hybrid' of natural wood and colored resin. The blade is 'Copper Wave' damascus steel with an extra strong core in VG-5; the one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with citrine gemstones. 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 ‘Hot Head’ features the exotic materials and superb artistry that are the hallmark of William Henry's collections; a timeless heirloom to be proudly worn and used for a lifetime before handing it down to another generation.

Copper Wave damascus

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

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.

Citrine

Citrine

Citrine is a variety of quartz whose color ranges from a pale yellow to brown due to ferric impurities.
The name is derived from Latin citrina which means "yellow" and is also the origin of the word "citron." Sometimes citrine and amethyst can be found together in the same crystal, which is then referred to as ametrine.
