The Pharaoh ‘Guide’ features a frame in hand-carved sterling silver with Mokume Gane by Lee Downey, inlaid with desert ironwood.The clip is machined and blast-polished from tempered stainless steel, with a beautiful engraving bright cut against the matte-finished background. Pharaoh money clip - inspired by the designs of ancient Egypt - draws on the elegant vessel forms of antiquity to create a simple yet striking range of possibilities, rendered in a variety of our hallmark materials and techniques. An elegant form with an enduring legacy.
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.
Our Desert Ironwood is sourced responsibly from Arizona and Northern Mexico, from the lower reaches of the Sonoran desert. It is very hard, very dense, and is one of a handful of woods that sinks in water. Ironwood also features some of the highest contrast and striking patterns of any wood in the world. Once used by the Seri Native Americans of Mexico for tool handles, we proudly offer premium grade ironwood on a variety of William Henry tools.
