Monarch 'Sirius'

Edition of 25 pieces
B05 SIRIUS

Monarch 'Sirius'

B05 SIRIUS

The Monarch 'Sirius' features a mesmerizing frame in 24K gold Koftgari (the ancient Indian technique of inlaying gold in tool-steel), inlaid with a beautiful scale made from the interior fossil tusk of a Woolly Mammoth that lived over 10,000 years ago. The blade is in black-coated 'wave' damascus steel with an extra strong core in ZDP-189. The one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with Spinel.
The Monarch is a simple design that is easy on the eye and effortless in the hand; the elegant shape of the handle is also an ideal canvas to showcase several of William Henry's most admired exotic materials.
The 'Sirius' is a rare and captivating personality statement to be worn and used for a lifetime before being handed down to another generation.

Materials

Black Coated 'Wave' damascus & core in ZDP-189 material image

Black Coated 'Wave' damascus & core in 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. These blades are finished with black tungsten coating.

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.

Spinel material image

Spinel

Natural spinel is a gemstone that has become a great favorite with gem dealers and gem collectors; one might even say that spinel is for gemstone connoisseurs only.
It is a hard glassy mineral occurring as octahedral crystals of variable color and consisting chiefly of magnesium and aluminum oxides. Some spinels are among the most famous gemstones in the world: among them are the Black Prince's Ruby and the "Timur ruby" in the British Crown Jewels, and the "Côte de Bretagne", formerly from the French Crown jewels.
